The Government Gateway
During the 2017 Rating List, business rates are managed through the Government Gateway – an online platform which allows access to national and local online government services safely and securely.
Ratepayers will be required to set up a secure account and invite their Rating Agent electronically to manage the process.
If you already have a Government Gateway account you can login and follow the steps to claim your property or properties.
If you do not already have a Government Gateway account you will need to register. Once you have registered you can go on to claim your property or properties.
