What are business rates?

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

  • Shops
  • Offices
  • Pubs
  • Warehouses
  • Factories
  • Holiday rental homes or guest houses

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

More information and guidance is provided by the Government.
