If you work from home, the part of the property used for your work may be subject to non-domestic Business Rates.
If your work space is exclusively used for business purposes
If the part of your home that you use for work is exclusively used for business purposes, we can consider the area separate to your domestic Council Tax account.
The space you use for business purposes, whether a room within the house or a garage, for example, can be given its own Rateable Value by the Valuation Office Agency (VOA) and be included in the non-domestic ratings list.
When the space within the domestic property is added to the national non-domestic ratings list, the assessment will then be liable for Business Rates.
To register your property for non-domestic Business Rates, please contact us.

If your work space doubles as a living space
If your work space doubles as a living space, or a bedroom, this cannot be assessed separately and will continue to be included in the domestic Council Tax assessment.
