COVID-19 rates in Stockton-on-Tees are very high so the Government has named it, along with the rest of the North East, an Enhanced Response Area. Find out more on our Enhanced Response Area page.

What are Business Rates?

Non-Domestic Rates, also known as Business Rates, are the way businesses and others who are responsible for commercial property make a contribution towards the cost of local services. The Council uses the rateable value provided by the Valuation Office Agency to calculate how much you should pay on behalf of Central Government.

Visit GOV.UK for further information about the Business Rates System.
