Non-Domestic Rates (business rates)

Explanatory notes 2020/2021

Following the changes to business rates announced by the Chancellor in Wednesday’s (11 March) Budget, we’re currently recalculating non-domestic rates bills for customers affected by the new relief measures.

All customers affected by the new relief measures shall receive a new bill shortly. We shall issue refunds to all customers who overpay non-domestic rates as a result of the Budget measures.

Non-Domestic Rates, or business rates, collected by local authorities are the way that those who occupy non-domestic property contribute towards the cost of local services.

Under the business rates retention arrangements introduced from 1st April 2013, authorities keep a proportion of the business rates paid locally. The money, together with revenue from council taxpayers, locally generated income and grants from central government, is used to pay for the services provided by local authorities in your area.

Further information about the business rate system can be found on the Government's website.
