Help and assistance
The Tees Valley Business Compass offers a useful first point of call to explore the range of funding/finance and business growth support options in the area. A team of growth consultants can provide free 1-1 advice to complete a full analysis of your business and identify the funding and support you may be able to access to help your business growth journey.
A range of incentives and free practical support, advice and business network connections is offered by Middlesbrough Council, including:
Business rate relief

- The rate of relief decreases gradually from 100% to 0% for properties with a rateable value between £6,001 and £12,000
