Register for business rates

We need to know if you're a new business moving into the borough, so that we can register your business for business rates.

You'll need to provide this information no more than 30 days before the move, so that we can prepare the correct bill for you.

To register for business rates please send one of the following documents:

  • a signed lease agreement
  • a signed tenancy agreement
  • a signed licensed agreement

Please send the document by post to:

Business Rates Office
PO BOX 731

A bill for a company will be sent to the registered office unless you give us an alternative address.

Once you have an account number you will be able to access our online services.
