  • Rate Relief Open or Close

    If you pay business rates, you may be eligible for rate relief. There are several options available. Further details regarding all reliefs available can be found on the Government website

  • Rateable Value Open or Close

    Your premises will be given a rateable value by the Valuation Office Agency which we will use to calculate how much you should pay. The rateable value of your property is shown on the front of your bill. This broadly represents the yearly rent the property could have been let for on the open market at a fixed valuation date.

    • Until 31 March 2017, the rateable values have been based on a valuation date of 1 April 2008.
    • From 1 April 2017, the rateable values are based on the valuation date of 1 April 2015.

    The rateable value is then multiplied by a figure set annually by central government (known as the multiplier) to calculate the rates payable. There are 2 multipliers : the standard non-domestic rating multiplier and the small business non-domestic rating multiplier. The former is higher to pay for small business rates relief.

    Revaluation 2017
    All rateable values are reassessed at a general revaluation to ensure bills paid by any one ratepayer reflect changes over time in the value of their property relative to others. This helps maintain fairness in the rating system by updating valuations in line with changes in the market.

    In the year of revaluation the multipliers are adjusted to account for overall changes to total rateable value and to ensure that the revaluation does not raise extra money for government. Similarly, the change in the revaluation date to 2017 has no effect on the total amount of revenue raised from business rates.

    If you think that your rateable value is incorrect, you can find and view your property details here.

  • Recovery and Appeals Open or Close

    The process of recovering unpaid money is governed by legislation and is outlined below:

    • Reminder - Business Rates payments should be made in accordance with the instalment due date on your NNDR bill. If you fail to pay on time, we will send you a Reminder notice asking you to bring your account up to date within 7 days. If you are unable to make payment immediately, we may be able to agree alternative payment arrangements. If you fail to make contact and don't bring your account up to date, we will not issue any further reminders. You will lose your right to pay by instalments and we will take court action against you. 
    • Final Notice - If you pay the amount required by the Reminder notice, and you are late with your payments again, you will lose the right to pay by instalments and you will be issued with a Final notice. This means that the remainder of your full yearly amount becomes due and payable. If you do not pay in full, we will take court action against you.
    • Summons - If you have failed to pay money owed on your account after a reminder has been sent to you, details of your account will be passed to the Recovery Section. At this stage we will issue a summons to appear at North East Derbyshire and Dales Magistrates Court. As a result, you will lose the right to pay by instalments and the summons will request that you pay the full outstanding balance, including an additional amount for court costs.
    • Arrangements - Once a summons has been issued, the Recovery Section will be happy to discuss making an arrangement for you to pay off your outstanding balance. This could be through a Direct Debit, three-monthly payments or based on your income and expenditure. We will still apply for a Liability Order with costs at the court hearing, but we will not take any further recovery action, as long as you keep to your arrangement.
    • Further Action - If you do not make an arrangement to pay, or fail to keep to the arrangement you have made, then the Recovery Section can take the following action: 1) pass your account to an enforcement agent's company to recover; you may be charged additional costs for this by the company 2) start insolvency proceedings 3) apply for your committal to prison.

     Of course we would like to avoid all of these options, if at all possible, by making an acceptable arrangement with you. Please contact the Revenues Section. 


    Please see the separate section regarding appeals.

    Full details/guidance on the appeals process can be found on the VOA website.
