Explain Business Rates

Business rates are the way that businesses and those who occupy non-domestic property contribute towards the cost of local services. 

The business rates are collected by the council and sent to the central government, which redistributes the money back to local councils according to the number of people living in the area. This money, together with council tax payments and government funding, pays for the services the council provides.

The next revaluation of business rates is underway in England and Wales - Revaluation 2023.
