National Non Domestic Rates
This is a tax charged on all business premises by the local authority, however the amounts to be charged are set by Central Government.
Each property is given a 'rateable value' by the Valuation Office Agency (part of the Inland Revenue) and this is multiplied by a 'poundage' to arrive at the amount payable. The poundage is set annually by the Government. For 2009/2010 poundage is 48.5p.
