Business rates guide


Business Rates (also known as National Non-Domestic Rates - NNDR) are a tax on the occupation and ownership of business properties. The tax is set by Central Government and administered and collected by local authorities. Business rates are the way that those who occupy/own 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.
