Providers of NHS dentistry can apply for a business rates reimbursement from us.
Providers can apply for this if:
- the provider or partners pay business rates for any premises that they provide services at
- NHS primary dental services provided at the premises cost more than £25,000 per year
A provider can claim a proportion of the business rates in relation to their ratio of NHS to private treatments provided at the practice.
We review claims for business rate reimbursement on behalf of NHS England and Welsh Government. This ensures that claims are accurate and that providers are paid correctly. It also helps us to educate providers on how to claim accurately.
