Business rates

Residents in Leicester and its outlying areas, including Birstall, Thurmaston and Wanlip in Charnwood, are to be asked to continue to follow stricter lockdown restrictions for at least two weeks, and non-essential shops will be closed. More information - including frequently asked questions and a postcode checker - can be found at www.charnwood.gov.uk/restrictions.

Business rates - the commonly used term for non-domestic rates - are charged on most non-domestic premises, including most commercial properties such as shops, offices, pubs, warehouses and factories.

If you use a building or part of a building for business, you will probably have to pay business rates. Your premises will be given a rateable value by the valuation office agency, which your local authority will use to calculate how much you should pay.

Contact our business rates service for further information or advice.
