Business Rate is a tax on business properties that helps to pay for the borough's services. It is also called the National Non-Domestic Rate.
Business Rates are pooled by Central Government and redistributed to local authorities as part of the annual formula grant settlement. The money, together with revenue from council tax payers, revenue support grant provided by the Government and certain other sums, is used to pay for the services provided by this authority.
The Council works out your Business Rate bill by multiplying the Rateable Value (see Revaluation 2017 and Transitional Arrangements) of the property by the rate multiplier or ‘poundage’, which the Government sets from the 1 April each year.
There are two multipliers. For properties which qualify for small business rate relief the multiplier for 2017/18 has been set at 46.6p in the pound. For properties which do not qualify, the multiplier has been set at 47.9p in the pound, which includes a supplement to pay for small business rate relief.
For details of the multipliers for previous years, please see Business Rate Multipliers.

The Greater London Authority (GLA) introduced a Business Rate Supplement (BRS) in April 2010 to finance £4.1 billion of the costs of the £14.5 billion Crossrail project.
What is Crossrail and how will it benefit your business?
Crossrail will connect the outer suburbs and Heathrow to the West End, City and Canary Wharf. It is vital to the future of London’s economy. The increased earnings it will bring – from new jobs and quicker journeys – will benefit businesses across London.
The single largest investment in London’s infrastructure for decades, employing up to 14,000 people at the peak of construction. Crossrail services are due start on the Shenfield to Liverpool Street section in 2017 and through central London in 2018. This will be followed by a phased introduction of services on the rest of the route.

Developments in the Construction and Financing of Crossrail
The Mayor of London agreed a settlement with government in October 2010 for the Crossrail route and secured investment to upgrade the Tube. Crossrail is now being built at its key sites across London.
In April 2012 the Mayor introduced a community infrastructure planning (CIL) levy on new developments in London to finance Crossrail. This is paid for by the developer. Find at more at GLA (external website).
How will London's Businesses Help Fund Crossrail?
The Crossrail BRS is being used to finance £4.1billion of the costs of the project. Of this around £3.3billion has been borrowed with the remaining £0.8billion being funded directly using BRS revenues. It will need to be levied until the GLA's borrowing is repaid. This is expected to be some time in the 2030s.
Does My Business Have to Pay the Crossrail BRS?
Your rates bill makes clear if you are liable to pay the BRS. The Crossrail BRS is applied only to assessments (e.g. business and other non-domestic premises) with a rateable value of over £70,000 on the local rating lists of the 32 London boroughs and City of London Corporation. This year the threshold has been increased from £55,000 in line with the average change in rateable values for properties liable to the BRS as a result of the 2017 business rates revaluation. Around 85 per cent of non-domestic properties in London will be exempt from the BRS due to this threshold.
How Much Do I Pay if My Property's Rateable Value is Above £70,000?
The Crossrail BRS multiplier for 2017-18 remains at 2p per pound of rateable value. Reliefs for the Crossrail BRS will apply on the same basis and at the same percentage rate as for your National Non Domestic Rates (NNDR) bill. However no transitional relief is provided for the BRS.
Keeping You Up to Date
We will give ratepayers an annual update over the lifetime of the BRS.
