National Non-Domestic Rates (NNDR)
National non-Domestic Rates (NNDR), or Business Rates, collected by local authorities are the way that those who occupy non-domestic property contribute towards the cost of local services. Except in the City of London where special arrangements apply, the rates are pooled by central government and redistributed to local authorities according to the number of people living in the area. The money, together with revenue from council tax payers, revenue support grant provided by the Government and certain other sums, is used to pay for the services provided by your local authority and other local authorities in your area.
Please contact 01200 414451 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any queries about Business Rates, your bill, Exemptions and Reliefs.
Business Rates is a yearly charge that we normally ask you to pay over ten instalments beginning April, unless other arrangements have been made.
We will always give you 14 days notice before instalments are due to begin. Your Business Rates bill clearly states the instalment dates and the amounts you need to pay to clear the bill in year.
This is the easiest and most convenient way for you to make payment. It takes the worry out of remembering to pay because the Council collects the payments direct from your bank or building society account on a fixed date each month. For monthly payers we take payment on the last day of each month (or the next working day if this falls on a weekend or bank holiday). You are always advised at least 14 days in advance of any changes in the amounts or dates, so that you have time to query the bill if necessary.
