Hull 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.

Hull City Council is the governing body responsible for the unitary authority and city of Kingston upon Hull. It was formed 1972 after the dissolution of the Corporation of (Kingston upon) Hull. Hull City council business rates are charged on most non-domestic premises. This includes most commercial properties such as warehouses and offices, which make up the typical economy in the Hull region.

A typically large industry is the food processing sector, which can also be subject to business rates in Hull. Properties such as warehouses in the food processing 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.

Hull also relies heavily on the manufacturing sector, which is a growth industry in the Hull region. Hull City Council business rates relief could apply to many businesses in the manufacturing sector. Another large contributor to the economy in Hull is the construction industry, which works with heavy machinery across the UK. Your business rates in Hull can be affected by any disruption or adverse access to your property and backdated savings could apply to the beginning of the Ratings List.
