Business rates

About business rates

Business rates are collected by the Council and are used to help pay for local services provided by the Council. They are charged on most non-domestic properties including shops, offices, pubs, warehouses and factories.


All rateable values are reassessed at a general revaluation. The most recent revaluation will take effect from 1 April 2023.
