Peterborough 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.

Peterborough Council is the local governing body responsible for the city of Peterborough. As a unitary authority, it has the combined powers of a district council and a non-metropolitan county. Peterborough 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 Peterborough region.

A typically large industry is the digital sector, which can also be subject to business rates in Peterborough. Properties such as warehouses and department stores in the digital 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.

Peterborough council business rates relief could apply to many businesses in the agri-food sectors.
