Business Rates

We refer you to the government website which shows that the current rateable value is £12,250. The amount payable would attract an element of small business rates relief which is further reduced by 50% result of the governments 2021 Budget Statement which means that only 50% is payable. We estimate that for a business occupying only one commercial property the amount payable would be circa £255 per annum. We do however recommend that this is verified by speaking with Cornwall Council Business Rates team.
