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.
