Tell us about a change

You need to tell us if your circumstances change. This includes:

  • moving into or out of a premises
  • buying or selling a premises
  • change to lease
  • change to contact details

We will be in touch to confirm within 5 working days

All stock and effects have to be removed before we can end your liability to business rates. Fixtures and fittings or items that are permanently fixed to the wall or floor are not classed as stock.

An inspector will need access to the premises to confirm that it is empty before we can close your account.

If you have vacated the property and it has not been sold or the lease has not ceased, you may be able to apply for empty property rates. This exemption can last for a period of up to 3 months for commercial and 6 months for industrial rated properties, from the date the property became empty.
