All the information you need about Business Rates and how to pay them.
Business Rates are a form of local taxation payable by the occupiers or owners of commercial properties such as shops, offices, pubs, warehouses and factories.
They are collected by the council on behalf of the Welsh Government. The money collected is paid into a central 'pool' and then redistributed across Wales to help pay for services provided by all the local authorities.
There are other commercial interests that Business Rates are payable for such as telecommunication masts, advertising rights, cash machines and car parks.

The 2017 revaluation will come into effect on 1 April 2017 with a valuation date of 1 April 2015. The council will use this value to calculate your business rate bill from 1 April 2017.
