Mid Devon 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.

Mid Devon Council is the local governing body responsible for the Government District of Mid Devon. The council is based in Tiverton. Mid Devon 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 Mid Devon region.

A typically large industry is the retail sector, which can also be subject to business rates in Mid Devon. Properties such as department stores and offices in the retail 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.

Mid Devon also relies heavily on the manufacturing sector, which accounts for 15% of employment in the Mid Devon area. Mid Devon business rates relief could apply to many businesses in the manufacturing sector. Another large contributor to the economy in the Mid Devon area is the agriculture, forestry and fishing industry, which is responsible for providing 4,000 jobs.
