What Are Business Rates?

Business Rates (National Non-Domestic Rates) are payable on all commercial properties. This includes shops, offices, banks, hotels, factories and power stations.

Business Rates are collected by Bassetlaw District Council for Central Government. Under the new Business Rates Retention Scheme, a proportion of the amount collected is retained by Bassetlaw.

The Your Business Rates Leaflet is produced by Bassetlaw District Council, and helps you understand how the Business Rates scheme works. It explains more about Transitional Relief and Small Business Rates Relief, and how to appeal.

We want to make sure our information is accessible to all. Therefore the information we have can be made available in either:
