About Business Rates

The Business Rate, also known as non-domestic rates (NDR), is a tax on properties that are not used for domestic purposes (for example, shops, factories and offices). If your property is used for both domestic and non-domestic purposes part of it will be assessed for Business Rates and the other part for council tax.

We collect Business Rates on behalf of central government. The council is required to pay the money due for Business Rates into a national pool, whether or not it has all been collected. This money is then shared out to each local authority depending on their population.

Business rates is normally payable over 10 monthly instalments. However, from the 2014/15 year, you can opt to pay your bill over 12 months. Contact us on the details below if you would like to pay over 12 months.
