General rating info

Non Domestic Rates can form a significant cost factor for any business and in Scotland, ratepayers normally only have a limited period in which to challenge the Rateable Value of their business premises after each five yearly Revaluation (normally 6 months).

A Revaluation is being carried out this year and took effect from 1st April 2010. All appeals against your new Rateable Value must therefore be lodged in the correct format prior to the end of September 2010.
How Non Domestic Rates are Charged

Non Domestic Rates for the year from 1st April 2010 will generally be levied by multiplying your new Rateable Value by 40.7p plus a supplement of 0.7p for properties where the rateable value is greater than £35,000.
