Chorley Council 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.

Chorley Council is the local governing body responsible for the local government district (with borough status) of Chorley in Lancashire. Chorley council 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 Chorley region.

A typically large industry is the manufacturing sector, which can also be subject to business rates in Chorley. Properties such as warehouse 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.
