Business Rates Appeals

Aside from those who are exempt from business rates, every non-domestic property has a 'rateable value', which is set by the Valuation Office Agency (VOA).

The rateable value of your property is its open market rental value on 1 April 2021, based on an estimate made by the VOA.

Once you know your rateable value, you are able to estimate your business rates.

If circumstances change, your rateable value may be altered. You - as well as certain others, who may have an interest in the property - can appeal against the value shown, if you believe it is wrong.

You can make an appeal online. You will need to set up (or log in to) a business rates valuation account:

Please note: If you would like information about holiday homes (and being assessed for non-domestic rates, rather than Council Tax), please refer to the government's business rates guidance on self-catering and holiday let accommodation.

Please note that we are only able to backdate any business rates rebate to the date where any change is to have effect.
