Business Rates

Business rates, also known as National Non-Domestic Rates (NNDR), are the contributions made by businesses towards the costs of services provided by the council. Under the scheme, the rates we collect  will be distributed so that the government will receive 50 per cent, the council will receive 30 per cent and the GLA will receive 20 per cent.

  • Rateable value

The Valuation Office Agency (VOA) has re-valuated all properties in England and gathers as much evidence as possible about actual rents paid for properties in order to determine appropriate rental values.The rateable value of any property in Hounslow can be inspected by visiting the Valuation Office Agency website.

         Please note: that your rates remain payable pending any possible query or appeal against your rateable value.

  • Transitional relief

If the rateable value of your property changes significantly as a result of revaluation, your rates will change gradually. This is called transitional relief. We will include transitional rate relief

automatically when working out what business rates you should pay.
