Business Rates Exempt Properties
Some types of property are exempt from Business Rates. This means that no Business Rates are charged on them and that they are not shown in the Local Rating List. The Local Rating List is explained in more detail in the Property Valuation pages.
Exempt properties include:
Agricultural land and buildings
Places of religious worship
Sewers and accessories
Property of drainage authorities
Certain property used for disabled people
Air raid protection works
Road crossings over watercourses
Property in enterprise zones
Minimum rateable value - Unoccupied properties with a rateable value of less than £2,900 are exempt.
If your property is no longer entitled to an exemption please tell Business Rates Team, stating the date from which the exemption should end and why.
