Information to support your business rates bill

business rates

The Non-Domestic Rates, or business rates, collected by local councils are the means by which businesses and others who occupy non-domestic properties make a contribution towards the cost of local services.

This money, together with revenue from council taxpayers, revenue support grant provided by the Government and certain other sums, is used to pay for the services provided by your local council and other local authorities in your area.

To pay your Business Rates go to our Online Payments page.

At the Budget on 8 March 2017 it was announced that the Government would provide additional support for some businesses facing increases in the business rates they have to pay. Until the Government provides complete details of the schemes being introduced business rates will be due to be paid in accordance with the bill issued.

As soon as the Council receives full details of the finalised schemes we will contact the businesses affected. If you are a business struggling with the increase in your business rates you can contact the customer services team to discuss your account.
