Business rates - calculating your bill

The local authority works out the Business Rates bill by multiplying the rateable value of the property by the appropriate multiplier. This factor, known as the "non-domestic rating multiplier", is fixed each year by the government.

For 2013/2014, the standard non-domestic rating multiplier has been set at 47.1p. Ratepayers entitled to Small Business Rate Relief have a lower multiplier. For 2013/2014, this has been set at 46.2p.

By law, multipliers cannot go up by more than the rate of inflation, apart from some minor adjustments to counteract losses from appeals and, in relation to the standard multiplier, to pay for small business rate relief.
