What are Business Rates?

Business rates are charged on most non-domestic properties including shops, offices, pubs, warehouses and factories.

Business rates are worked out by multiplying the 'rateable value' of your property (set by the Valuation Office Agency) by the business rates multiplier (set by central government).

The two multipliers in force from 1st April 2019 are 50.4p for the main business rates multiplier and 49.1p for small businesses

For more information on rateable values and how to appeal if you think your rateable value is wrong, please contact the Valuation Office Agency.

If you pay business rates you may be eligible for business rates relief. There are various different types of relief available and some have to be applied for.
