What are business rates?
Business rates, also known as national non-domestic rates, are a tax on those responsible for commercial property. Business rates contribute to local services - they are the equivalent of Council Tax for non-domestic properties.
Horsham District Council works with LGSS to collect business rates.
How are your business rate calculated?
Your business rate is set by the government's Valuation Office Agency. You can find and check your business rate valuation using the government's online tool.
