This page provides information about business rates and what they are about.
Non-Domestic Rates (Business Rates), collected by local councils are the means by which businesses and others who occupy non-domestic property make a contribution towards the cost of local services. Except in the City of London where special arrangements apply, the rates are pooled by central government and redistributed to local councils according to the number of people living in the area.
This money, together with revenue from Council Tax payers, Revenue Support Grant provided by the Government and certain other sums, is used to pay for the services provided by your local council and other local authorities in your area.
Business Rates are dealt with by our Revenues team, who also deal with Council Tax.
The Council's business rates web pages cover the main information about business rates, plus any announcements about upcoming legislative changes, for detailed information on business rates please go to the Business Link Website. The Business Link website contains information about all aspects of starting and running a business.
