Rother 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.

Rother Council is the local governing body responsible for the district of Rother. Elections are held every four years, with 38 councillors for each term. Rother business rates are charged on most non-domestic premises. This includes most commercial properties such as offices and department stores, which make up the typical economy in the Rother region.

A typically large industry is the construction sector, which can also be subject to business rates in Rother. Properties such as offices in the construction 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.

Rother also relies heavily on the accommodation and food services sector, which contributed to a GDP (Gross Domestic Product) growth of 5% per year in 2018 and 2019 in the Rother area. Rother business rates relief could apply to many businesses in the accommodation and food services sector. Another large contributor to the economy in the Rother area is the retail industry, which accounts for 8.5% of employment in the region. Your business rates in Rother can be affected by any disruption or adverse access to your property and backdated savings could apply to the beginning of the Ratings List.
