What you'll pay
You must pay Business Rates (National Non-Domestic Rates) on properties such as shops, offices and factories. Central government set the multipliers (the rates in the £) each year.
For 2019/2020 the multiplier has been set at 50.4p. Businesses qualifying for small business rate relief will pay a multiplier of 49.1p.
The Valuation Officer sets Business Rates based on the rateable value of the property. This is revalued on a regular basis.
The latest general revaluation took effect from 1st April 2017.
