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 (2017/18) we collected 99.0% of business rates in-year, equal 74th nationally, the same percentage as the previous year. This is substantially higher than the national average of 98.4%.

The national average in-year collection rate for non-domestic rates in England was 98.4% in 2017/18.

Overall business rate collection, covering over 20 years is around 99.5%. This financial year alone we will again collect around £32 million in non-domestic rates from 3,800 business ratepayers.
