How your business rates are calculated

Business rates are charged on most non-domestic properties, like: shops, offices, pubs, warehouses, factories, holiday rental homes or guest houses. You’ll probably have to pay business rates if you use a building or part of a building for non-domestic purposes.

How your rates are calculated

Business rates are based on your property’s ‘rateable value’.

This is an estimate by the Valuation Office Agency of how much it would cost to rent a property for a year on 21 April 2021.

There’s guidance on how to estimate your business rates.

Your bill will be reduced if your property’s eligible for business rates relief.
