Business Rates or National Non-Domestic Rates (NNDR)
Business Rates (also known as National Non-Domestic Rates) are a tax on business properties.
The tax is set by the government and business rates collected by local authorities are the way that those who occupy non-domestic property contribute towards the cost of local services.
Under the business rates retention arrangements introduced from 1 April 2013, authorities keep a proportion of the business rates paid locally.
The money is used to help pay for the services the Council provides.
