How business rates are calculated

Mazar's RULING – The effect on business ratepayers

In 2016 a supreme court case changed the way that the Valuation Office Agency (VOA) assessed the rateable value of premises where there is more than one occupier.

Details can be found on GOV.UK

This may have resulted in some ratepayers being liable for multiple rating assessments and they may have lost any entitlement to small business rates relief.

The government have decided to introduce legislation that reverses this in a number of cases.

Details can be found on Parliament.UK

If you've been affected by this ruling, we suggest that you contact the VOA to discuss this matter.

Non-domestic rates, or business rates, collected by local authorities are the way that those who occupy non-domestic property contribute towards the cost of local services.
