Business rates information

Where does the money go?

Part of the money goes back to central government for redistribution across the country, but about half goes to the council, helping to pay for local services. One percent goes towards local Police and Fire services.

Collection of commercial waste is not covered by Business Rates. However, the council offers a commercial waste collection service , with competitive pricing and flexible solutions.
