We calculate business rates by multiplying:

For the financial year 2024 to 2025, the multiplier is 

  • the small business multiplier will be frozen at 49.9p
  • the standard multiplier will be uprated in April by September’s CPI figure (6.7%), increasing the multiplier from 51.2p to 54.6p

For the financial year 2023 to 2024, the multiplier is:

  • non-domestic rating multiplier: 51.2p (0.512)
  • small business non-domestic rating multiplier: 49.9p (0.499)

If your rate-able value is less than £51,000, we’ll calculate your Business Rate using the small business rate multiplier.
