Local authorities will be allocated a £1.5bn funding pot to help businesses affected by COVID-19.
The Treasury said it would legislate to 'rule out' COVID-19 related business rates appeals.
Instead it will provide £1.5bn to support businesses that have been unable to benefit from the existing rates relief so far.
The Government said the money would be distributed according to which sectors have suffered most economically rather than on the basis of falls in property values.
Local government secretary Robert Jenrick said: 'This is the fastest and fairest way of getting support to businesses who need it the most.
'We are also acting to ensure businesses have certainty over their bills and councils have certainty over their funding so they can continue to support their communities and deliver quality local services.'
