Business rates

If you own a business, you may have to pay business rates (or NNDR which stands for national non-domestic rates). Business rates are paid by businesses (and other occupiers of non-domestic properties). 

Although we collect business rates, the amount local businesses pay is set by central government. Under the business rate retention scheme (introduced 1 April 2013), we now keep a portion of the rates paid by local businesses. This is used to help support local services. We pass the rest to central government.

You can find further information about the business rates system using the links below, by visiting the GOV.UK website or by reading the Business rates explanatory notes.

If you would like to speak to our business rates team, contact revenues@lichfielddc.gov.uk or call them on 01543 308900.
