Gravesham 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.

Herefordshire Council is the local governing body responsible for the county of Herefordshire. As a unitary authority, it has the combined powers of a non-metropolitan county and a district council. Herefordshire business rates are charged on most non-domestic premises. This includes most commercial properties such as offices and warehouses, which make up the typical economy in the Herefordshire region.

A typically large industry is the engineering sector, which can also be subject to business rates in Herefordshire. Properties such as office buildings in the engineering 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.

Herefordshire also relies heavily on the transport sector, which between 2020 and 2021 was recorded as the fastest growing sector for jobs in the Herefordshire area. Herefordshire business rates relief could apply to many businesses in the transport sector. Another large contributor to the economy in the Herefordshire area is the administration industry, which accounts for 7,300 roles in the area.
