Business Rates (also known as National Non-Domestic Rates) is a tax on business properties, and is the way that those who occupy non-domestic property contribute towards the cost of local services.
The Council retains only a part of the Business Rates collected, with the remainder being paid to Government, Staffordshire County Council and Staffordshire Fire Commissioner. For more information please visit our Business Rates Explained page.
The Council is responsible for collecting the rates on behalf of those agencies and for administering the various reductions and reliefs that are allowable.
