South Staffordshire 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.

South Staffordshire District Council is the local authority responsible for the local government district of South Staffordshire.  South Staffordshire business rates are charged on most non-domestic premises. This includes most commercial properties such as manufacturing firms and pubs, which make up the typical economy in the South Staffordshire region.

A typically large industry is the accommodation and food services sector, which can also be subject to business rates in South Staffordshire. Properties such as restaurants and hotels in the accommodation and food services 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 Staffordshire also relies heavily on the construction sector, of which it accounts for 8.4% of the roles in the region’s workforce. South Staffordshire small business rates relief could apply to many businesses in the cosntruction sector. Another large contributor to the economy in South Staffordshire is the manufacturing industry, which works with heavy machinery and lorry’s making deliveries across the UK.
