Business rates (or non-domestic rates) are taxes collected by local authorities from the occupiers or owners of most non-domestic properties to help pay for local services. More information can be found on the business rates information pages and in the explanatory notes from the government - these form part of your demand notice.
You may be able to get business rates relief. There are a number of reductions that can reduce the amount you have to pay.
Customers can now manage their business rates account online on the council’s online portal, My Account
