More than 100 Bexley businesses could be missing out on Small Business Rate Relief.
Those with rateable values below £6,000 do not have to pay rates, while others below £12,000 receive some rate relief. Currently, 75 per cent of businesses in Bexley receive the breaks.
Cabinet member for finance and corporate services, cllr Colin Campbell said: “We recognise that business rates represent the biggest outgoing for many firms along with rent and staff costs.
“This scheme can provide much needed assistance and I urge businesses to take action to see if they are eligible.”
