Why do I have to pay Business Rates?

Business Rates are a contribution made by businesses towards the cost of local services. These services include road-maintenance, the Police and the Fire Service. Under the business rates retention arrangements introduced from 1 April 2013, local Councils keep a proportion of the business rates paid locally. This money, together with revenue from council tax payers, revenue support grant provided by the Government and certain other sums, is used to pay for the services provided by your local authority and other local authorities in your area.
