Allerdale 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.

Allerdale Council is the local governing body responsible for the non-metropolitan district, with borough status, of Allerdale in Cumbria. Allerdale business rates are charged on most non-domestic premises. This includes most commercial properties such as hotels and warehouses, which make up the typical economy in the Allerdale region.

A typically large industry is the agriculture, forestry and fishing sector, which can also be subject to business rates in Allerdale. Properties such as warehouses in the agriculture, forestry and fishing 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.

Allerdale also relies heavily on the retail sector, which contributed to the overall GDP (Gross Domestic Product) in 2019 of £2.1 billion in the Allerdale area. Allerdale business rates relief could apply to many businesses in the retail sector. Another large contributor to the economy in the Allerdale area is the accommodation and food services industry, which represents 10.6% of employment.
