What are business rates?

Business rates are a tax that’s applicable to all non-domestic buildings, including schools and nurseries. In England and Wales, these rates are calculated based on the building’s ‘rateable value’. This ‘rateable value’ is in turn calculated from the property’s annual rental value at the last valuation (currently April 2008) or the cost of building a new, similar facility at that time.
