Non Domestic Rates (business rates) are a national property tax on all commercial properties administered by Dundee City Council.

The amount of rates that you will pay is dependent on the rateable value given to that property, multiplied by the uniform business poundage, this is set by the Scottish Government.  The Business rates guidance and calculator can be found on the website.

To search for a rateable value (which is set by the Scottish Assessors office), visit their website.

A revaluation of the rateable values for all Non Domestic properties took place on 1st April 2017.  Some frequently asked questions are detailed in the Institute of Revenues, Rating and Valuation (IRRV) Getting Professional Advice leaflet (107KB PDF).
