Adur Business Rates

Business Rates (also known as non-domestic rates) are a tax levied by the government on all commercial premises. The Rateable Value of a property is set by the Valuation Office Agency (VOA) and collected by your local authority.

Adur Council is the local governing body responsible for the government district of Adur in West Sussex. Adur council business rates are charged on most non-domestic premises. This includes most commercial properties such as retail stores and offices, which make up the typical economy in the Adur region.

A typically large industry is the manufacturing sector, which can also be subject to business rates in Adur. Properties such as warehouses and offices in the manufacturing sector can be incorrectly valued as usually their use can change over many years, and information may not have been updated with the VOA. This can have a huge impact on business running costs, as business rates can be in the top five costs for a business.

Adur also relies heavily on the retail sector, which accounts for 11.8% of roles in the Adur area. Adur council business rates relief could apply to many businesses in the retail sector. Another large contributor to the economy in the Adur area is the construction industry, which represents 7.1% of employment in the region.
