Business rates charges
Business rates are also referred to as non-domestic rates. They are paid on non-domestic properties by all businesses and companies.
The amount you pay is calculated by multiplying the non-domestic rate (NDR) per pound by the rateable value of the property your business occupies.
Non-domestic rate per pound
The non-domestic rate per pound is set by the Scottish Government. In February 2020, the Scottish Government introduced a late change to their 2020/21 budget. The change introduced an intermediate supplement rate of 1.3 pence for all properties with a rateable value between £51,001 and £95,000.
Due to the late introduction, our billing system is currently unable to reflect the new supplement rate on your annual bill. We hope to recalculate your charge and issue a revised bill to you in the coming months.
The rates for 2020/21 are as follows:
|Rateable value less than £51,001||49.8 pence per pound|
|New intermediate supplement for rateable values between £51,001 and £95,000||51.1 pence per pound|
|Rateable value greater than £95,000||52.4 pence per pound|
