What are business rates?

Council tax, benefits and business rates

Due to essential system maintenance, we have limited access to your data

  • in the Kettering area
  • until Friday 26 July in the East Northamptonshire area

We may be unable to assist with your query until this is complete and online accounts will be unavailable. You can still make a payment on our website or by phone. 
Let us know about a change on our top tasks, or for anything else, use our online contact form - our team will get back to you when we’re back up and running.

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.
