Spelthorne Council 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.

Spelthorne Borough Council is the local governing body responsible for the borough of Spelthorne. Spelthorne council 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 Spelthorne region.

A typically large industry is the information and communication sector, which can also be subject to business rates in Spelthorne. Properties such as offices in the information and communication 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.

Spelthorne council business rates relief could apply to many businesses in the construction sector.
