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.
Chesterfield Borough Council is the local governing body responsible for the government borough of Chesterfield, in Derbyshire. Chesterfield business rates are charged on most non-domestic premises. This includes most commercial properties such as retail stores and warehouses, which make up the typical economy in the Chesterfield region.
