Business rates

The Government has announced in the Autumn Statement several changes for the new rating list. Visit the Gov.uk website for further information on the Autumn Statement 2022. A summary is as follows:

  • the business rates multiplier has been frozen at 49.9p for any property with a rateable value of less than £51,000, and 51.2p for properties with a rateable value of £51,000 or more
  • increased relief from 50% up to 75% for retail, hospitality and leisure businesses (Up to £110,000)
  • reformed transitional relief so any business that has a reduction in their rateable value will see this benefit immediately, without phasing
  • generous support for small businesses that may see a reduction in their small business rates relief due to an increase in their rateable value

The draft valuation list for 2023 has been published by the valuation office.
