Business Rates

Business Rates (also known as National Non Domestic Rates) are a tax on the occupation of business property rather than a payment for the provision of specific services. Rates are payable on most non-domestic property. The tax is effectively set by the government, but the local council is responsible for sending out the bills and collecting rates from businesses in the Calderdale district.
