West Lindsey 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.

West Lindsey Council is the local governing body responsible for the Government District of West Lindsey in Lincolnshire. West Lindsey 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 West Lindsey region.

A typically large industry is the agriculture, forestry and fishing sector, which can also be subject to business rates in West Lindsey. Properties such as warehouses in the agriculture, forestry and fishing 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.
