2017 Rating Revaluation

Following the 2017 Rating Revaluation, a new Rateable Value has been set on all 1.9m properties nationwide subject to business rates – this figure has determined the level of new rates bills.



Five things you need to know about how the Revaluation has affected your bills

  1. The 2017 Rateable Values determine the level of your rates liability
  2. In England large rates increases and reductions are being phased in
  3. Rate phasing cap raised to 42% on properties with RV greater than £100,000
  4. 2017/18 Uniform Business Rate (UBR) is set at 47.9p
  5. New small business rate relief scheme came into effect on 1 April 2017

Challenges against the 2017 Rateable Values can be lodged now so get in touch to find out whether you could be due a refund.
