The Valuation Office Agency (VOA), an agency of HM Revenues and Customs, sets the rateable value of business premises by using property details such as rental information.
We use the rateable value and the business rates multiplier to calculate your business rates bill.
The rateable value is assessed by the Valuation Office Agency (VOA).
A property's rateable value is an assessment of the annual rent the property would cost if it was available to let on the open market on a fixed valuation date.
If you think your rateable value is wrong, there is information on the governments website to help you find and view your property details.
This will give you advice and information about how you can check, challenge and appeal the process.
A new rating list is due to commence on 1 April 2023 with a valuation date of 1 April 2021. The draft list will be available for inspection on the VOA website towards the end of 2022.
