If your business or premises change
Your business rates could change if:
- you move or make changes to your premises
- the nature of your business changes
You must report any changes to your local assessor to ensure you're paying the right amount and don't get a backdated increase in your bill.
If you're moving to new premises, you can use our business rates calculator to estimate your business rates bill. You should also let your local council know about your move.
If you're changing premises, it's important that your business lease matches your requirements and that you understand its terms and conditions. For example, you should consider whether the terms of the lease state if you or the landlord are liable for rates and utilities.
