Information, advice and guidance

About Business Rates

The Business Rate is a tax on all business and non-domestic properties. It is calculated by multiplying the Rateable Value of an individual property by the National Non Domestic Multiplier. The result of this calculation is the business rate payable for the year.This amount may be varied by Transitional Relief or Transitional Surcharge, dependent on the government's phasing arrangements.

All businesses benefit from the services which local authorities provide.

Businesses find some services more useful than others, for example, street lighting and road repairs or the police and fire services. Business Rates help pay for these services.

The money collected from the charge is shared between Local Government, Central Government and, in the case of Doncaster, South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue.
