Business rates

Page updated 13 March 2019

Who needs to pay business rates?

Business rates are charged on most non-domestic properties, like:

  • shops
  • offices
  • pubs
  • warehouses
  • factories
  • holiday rental homes or guest houses

You'll probably have to pay business rates if you are the occupier of a building or part of a building for non-domestic purposes.
