Business Rates

Business Rates, also known as Non-Domestic Rates (NDR), are taxes paid by businesses and other organisations that occupy non-domestic property in the UK. They are calculated based on the rateable value of the property, which is assessed by the Valuation Office Agency (VOA) and reviewed every five years. Business rates are a significant expense for many businesses and can often be a source of frustration due to their complexity.
