Nottingham 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.

Nottingham City Council is the non-metropolitan district council for the unitary authority of Nottingham. In total there are twenty wards, represented by a total of fifty-five councillors. Nottingham council business rates are charged on most non-domestic premises. This includes most commercial properties such as hotels and office buildings, which make up the typical economy in the Nottingham region.

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

Nottingham also relies heavily on the hospitality sector, which in 2017 had only a 4.2% vacancy rate – much lower than the UK average. Nottingham City Council business rates relief could apply to many businesses in the hospitality sector. Another large contributor to the economy in Nottingham is the transportation and storage industry, which often works with large vehicles across the UK. Your business rates in Nottingham can be affected by any disruption or adverse access to your property and backdated savings could apply to the beginning of the Ratings List.
