Business Rates

Coronavirus: We are following government advice and updates about any impact on our services will be added here as soon as possible:


In response to the Coronavirus the Government has announced it will be supporting business with grants.  The grants are available to retail, hospitality and leisure businesses with a rateable value up to £51,000, and any small business getting Small Business Rate Relief.  You can request your Business Rates Support Grant online.

Business Rates (also known as Non-Domestic Rates), collected by local authorities, is the way that those who occupy a non-domestic property contribute towards the cost of local services. Under the current business rates scheme, authorities keep a proportion of the business rates paid locally. Given that authorities will benefit from growth in business rates revenues; this provides a direct financial incentive for local authorities to work with businesses in their area to create a favourable local environment for growth.

Business Rate income, together with revenue from council tax payers, revenue support grant provided by the Government and certain other sums, is used to help pay for the services provided by New Forest District Council, Hampshire County Council and Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service.
