How are my business rates calculated?

Your annual business rates bill is calculated and collected by us.

We multiply the rateable value of your property, which is set by the Valuation Office Agency (VOA), by the national non-domestic multiplier set by central government. The calculation gives the amount of business rates payable on your property for the year.

The rateable value is based on the amount your premises could be let for and this can be found by doing a postcode search on the Valuation Office Agency website. If you wish to appeal against your rateable value, please contact the Valuation Office Agency.

For further information please read our business rates explanatory notes. If you wish to query your business rates bill or liability, please contact us.
