About business rates

Business rates are the means by which businesses and other organisations that occupy non-domestic (commercial) property make a contribution towards the cost of local services.

From April 2013 The Government changed the way in which local services are funded through the introduction of the business rates retention scheme. The local government sector (local authorities and fire and rescue authorities) are now able to benefit directly from supporting local business growth to invest in local services.
