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.
Pershore Council is the local authority responsible for the market town of Pershore in the Wychavon district of Worcestershire. The town is a part of the West Worcestershire parliamentary constituency. Pershore 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 Pershore region.
A typically large industry is the retail sector, which can also be subject to business rates in Pershore. Properties such as office buildings and shops 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.

Pershore business rates relief could apply to many businesses in the business administration and support sector. Another large contributor to the economy in Pershore is the manufacturing industry, which works with heavy machinery and lorry’s making deliveries across the UK.
