Non-domestic rates charges - what you pay
Annual business rates bills are issued in April for the period 1 April to 31 March. Payments are due by 10 monthly instalments (May to February) or twice yearly (June and December). The non-domestic rates team can provide:
- bills in a different format or language
- balance and account information
- guidance on reliefs available
Non-domestic rates are based on the rateable value of premises, multiplied by the rate poundage (set by the Scottish Government), less any reliefs awarded to you. Visit the mygov.scot website for more information and a quick rates calculator.
The Scottish Assessors Association holds details on rateable values and how these are set.
Visit Water Industry Commission for Scotland for information on non-domestic water and waste water charges (charged separately by your chosen provider).
You can register your details if you are interested in receiving your non-domestic rates bill and any other related correspondence electronically.
