2017 Rating Revaluation

Business Rates have been revised in England, Scotland and Wales from 1 April 2017 based on the rental market as at 1 April 2015.

At the 2017 Rating List, the Valuation Office has updated the rateable value of all business properties for the next five years, the process known as the revaluation. Having not been completed for seven years, there have been some significant changes in the values.


  The government has introduced a new business rates appeal system at the 2017. revaluation. The key difference is in what happens if you think your business rates bill is inaccurate and want to lodge an appeal. This process is called “Check, Challenge and Appeal” (CCA). We can advise you through this process to achieve the maximum savings possible. We can also advise you on the UBR (Uniform Business Rate) and transition. 2017 Multiplies The small business non-domestic multiplier for 2017-18 is 46.6p. The Non-domestic multiplier for 2017/2018 is 47.9p. In the 2016 Autumn Statement, the government confirmed plans for Transitional Relief, a relief designed to offset any major increases or decreases in rates payable following changes to rateable values. These are automatically added to the rate bill and where appropriate phased in or out over time.
