Business rates are similar to council tax as they go towards paying for local services. If you run a business, you’ll have to pay business rates. The amount you have to pay is worked out by the business property’s value and the year’s rate multiplier. Small businesses can claim a rate discount
Business Rates go towards the local services in Bournemouth. Anyone who occupies premises for non-domestic use has to pay them.
You can pay your Business rates in several ways – online, at the bank, on the phone or by post.
Business rates are calculated with your property's rateable value and the rate multiplier for the year.
You need to let us know if you leave your property and move to another premises as your business rate could change.
If your property has been empty for over three months, you will have to pay the full business rate.
Transitional arrangements, or transitional relief, helps businesses adjust to rate changes after a revaluation
Not paying your business rates is a serious matter. If you leave it long enough, you could be sent to court.
We help small retail businesses by providing Retail Relief to properties with a low rateable value.
If you run a small business, you can apply for a reduction off your business rate.
