Rateable values

The rateable value of a property is set by the Valuation Office Agency, which is part of HM Revenue & Customs

Rateable values are based on:

  • the rental value that a well maintained property would attract
  • the floor area of the building
  • the usage of the building
  • the location of the building

How business rates are calculated

The small business rate multiplier is £0.4666. This applies to properties with a rateable value of less than £51,000.

The larger multiplier of £0.479 is applied to properties with a rateable value of greater than £51,000. 

For example, if your rateable value is £10,000 then your rates payable would be £4,660 (10,000 x 0.466 = 4,660).
