How are my business rates calculated?

The formula for calculating your bill is set by central government. 

 Your premises are given a rateable value by the Valuation Office Agency. We use this to calculate how much you should pay.

We work out the bill by multiplying the rateable value of the property by a figure set annually by central government. This is known as a multiplier. We will apply the transitional phasing scheme when it is required. This means that changes to your rates bills will be phased in gradually.

There are two multipliers for 2021/22:

  • The standard non-domestic rating multiplier which is 51.2p in the pound
  • The small business non-domestic rating multiplier which is 49.9p in the pound

There are two multipliers for 2020/21:

  • The standard non-domestic rating multiplier which is 51.2p in the pound
  • The small business non-domestic rating multiplier which is 49.9p in the pound

There are two multipliers for 2019/20:

  • The standard non-domestic rating multiplier which is 50.4p in the pound
  • The small business non-domestic rating multiplier which is 49.1p in the pound
