Nottinghamshire County Council - Proud of our past, ambitious for our future

Business Rates

Business Rates are similar to Council Tax, but they are paid on commercial property, such as factories, offices and shops.

They are used to pay for council services, the same as Council Tax.

The amount of Business Rates you pay depends on:

  • the rateable value of the property. This is the market rent that the property would be expected to command
  • the rating multiplier. This is an amount set by central Government

The rateable value multiplied by the rating multiplier equals the amount of Business Rates you pay.

Some reductions and exemptions apply. For further information, please contact your local district council.

More information

Business Rates are calculated and collected by District Councils - contact them for more information.
