North Hertfordshire 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.

North Hertfordshire District Council is the local authority responsible for the non-metropolitan district of North Hertfordshire. North Hertfordshire business rates are charged on most non-domestic premises. This includes most commercial properties such as manufacturing firms and offices, which make up the typical economy in the North Hertfordshire region.

A typically large industry is the accommodation and food services sector, which can also be subject to business rates in North Hertfordshire. Properties such as hotels and takeaways in the accommodation and food services 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.

North Hertfordshire also relies heavily on the professional, scientific and technical sector, which represents over 10% of roles in the region’s workforce. North Hertfordshire business rates relief could apply to many businesses in the professional, scientific and technical sector. Another large contributor to the economy in North Hertfordshire is the manufacturing industry, which works with heavy machinery and lorry’s making deliveries across the UK.
