    What are Business Rates?

    Business Rates are a tax on the right to occupy commercial property and typically equate to approximately 50% of annual rent.

    They are one of the largest overheads for businesses and substantially impact on profitability.

    How are Business Rates calculated?

    Business Rates are calculated by multiplying the Rateable Value (RV) of a property by the Uniform Business Rates (UBR).

    The RV is the Valuation Office’s estimate of a property’s market rent at a set valuation date.

    We are currently in the 2023 Rating List with Rateable Values being based on a valuation date of 1st April 2021 in England.
