Business rates

Local authorities collect business rates on most non-domestic and commercial properties, eg:

  • shops
  • offices
  • pubs
  • warehouses
  • factories

You’ll probably have to pay business rates (sometimes known as NNDR or National Non-domestic Rates) if you use a building or part of a building for non-domestic purposes.

Learn about the business rates system, including transitional and other reliefs.

You’ll need to tell us about any changes to you or business, as they may affect amount of business rates you’ll have to pay.

Let us know if:

  • you move address
  • you believe that you are entitled to an allowance (discount, exemption or relief)
  • you believe that you are no longer entitled to an allowance
  • the Valuation Officer changes the rateable value of your property
  • your property changes from empty to occupied (or vice versa)

If necessary, we will re-calculate our charges and send you your new bill.
