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.
South Holland Council is the local authority responsible for the government district of South Holland, in Lincolnshire. South Holland business rates are charged on most non-domestic premises. This includes most commercial properties such as manufacturing firms and warehouses, which make up the typical economy in the South Holland region.
A typically large industry is the transport and storage sector, which can also be subject to business rates in South Holland. Properties such as office buildings and warehouses in the transport and storage 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.

South Holland business rates relief could apply to many businesses in the manufacturing sector.
