Change in circumstances

It is important to tell us of any change in your circumstances which may affect your business rates, for example if:

  • you change address
  • your property changes from being empty to occupied (or vice versa)
  • the Valuation Office Agency changes the rateable value of your property

How to tell us about a change

Complete the Business Rates - Change of circumstances form

In order to register for Business Rates we will need to see a signed copy of your lease agreement. Please provide this to us along with your company/charity registration number or (for sole traders) a copy of your photographic ID. If you have purchased the unit and do not hold the lease please provide documentation confirming the sale date.

What happens next?

We will re-calculate your business rates and send you a new bill.
