What are business rates?

Each non-domestic property has a rateable value which is set by the national Valuation Office Agency.

Business rates are charged on most non-domestic properties, such as:

  • shops
  • offices
  • pubs
  • warehouses
  • factories
  • holiday rental homes or guest houses.

You will probably have to pay business rates if you use a building or part of a building for non-domestic purposes.

The Valuation Office Agency may change the value if it believes the circumstances of the property have changed.
