How do I know if I’m paying the correct amount on my business rates?
It’s vital you check, on a regular basis, that you are paying the correct amount of business rates.
You can check the Rateable Value of your property set by the Valuation Office Agency and used by your local council to calculate your business rates bill on the VOA website. You can also request changes to property or valuation details if you think they’re wrong, view the valuation details of other properties and challenge the Rateable Value if eligible.
Checking regularly will ensure you continue to benefit from any additional grounds on which to achieve a saving, such as changes in the locality like disturbance from adjoining building works or road works.
