The borough consists of Canvey Island, South Benfleet, Thundersley, and Hadleigh. Castle Point council business rates are charged on most non-domestic premises.

A typically large industry is the accommodation and food services sector, which can also be subject to business rates in Castle Point. Properties such as restaurants and hotels in the accommodation and food services 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.
