About business rates
Business rates are calculated and collected by the Council. Under the business rates retention arrangements, the Council retains a proportion of the business rates collected to help pay for local services provided by the Council. Business rates are charged on most non-domestic properties (including commercial), for example:
If you have recently moved your business into a non-domestic property in Trafford, or plan to shortly, please let us know by contacting the Business Rates team at email@example.com.
If you pay business rates, you may be entitled to rate relief that will help reduce your bill. This is sometimes automatic, but you will need to apply directly for a number of the relief schemes available. You can find more information about the several rate relief schemes available on our Reductions and Relief page.
