Non-domestic rates are the way in which businesses and other occupiers of non-domestic property indirectly contribute towards the costs of local authority services.

Business rates (national non-domestic rates) are payable for most non-domestic properties; they are collected by the council, paid into a central pool and redistributed to local authorities to pay for services. Some properties are not rateable, e.g. farm buildings, public parks, churches.

The Valuation Office Agency allocates a rateable value for each business property. This represents its open market rental value at the valuation date. The date is fixed so that all properties are valued at the same point in time – April 2003 for the new rating list which came into force on 1st April 2005.

Rates payable are calculated by applying a ‘poundage’ or ‘multiplier’ to the rateable value. The multiplier is set annually by the Welsh Government, it was 47.3p for 2014/15 and 48.2p for 2015/16.

Unoccupied business rates charges

From 1st April 2008 new legislation alters the rates charge to be levied on unoccupied business premises. In addition to the information on small business relief here we can now confirm that the Welsh Government will continue this relief through to 31st March 2016.

With effect from 1st October 2010 the Welsh Government have introduced an enhanced scheme for small businesses.
