How business rates are calculated

The rateable value of your business premises is set by the Valuation Office Agency (VOA). A full list of rateable values are available on the Valuation Office Agency website.

Rateable values are the amount of rent a property could have been let for on a set valuation date. For the 2023 valuation, that date was 1 April 2021. 

We use these rateable values to calculate business rates bills. 

More information on how your rates are calculated is available on the GOVUK website.
