Business rates are a form of tax levied on non-domestic properties in the United Kingdom, such as shops, offices, factories, and warehouses.

They are calculated based on the rateable value of the property, which is an estimate of its open market rental value. The local government uses this valuation to determine the amount of rates a business needs to pay. Business rates differ from business to business.

For example, public houses are generally judged on turnover. Nurseries and day care centres are generally judged on a number of children. Thankfully there is an appeal process in place to ensure your rateable value is fair and reasonable.
