Collection rates for business rates

Since the introduction of national non domestic rates in 1990 Amber Valley’s business rates collection rate has consistently placed us in the upper quartile for English authorities.

Last year (2020/21) we collected 98.0% of business rates in-year, equal 25th nationally. This is substantially higher than the national average. The national average in-year collection rate for non-domestic rates in England was 93.0% in 2020/21.

Overall business rate collection, covering 30 years is around 99.5%. This financial year alone we will again collect around £29 million in non-domestic rates from some 4,000 business ratepayers.
