Calculate your rates bill

To calculate your rates bill, use the rates calculator on Land & Property Services website.

Your bill is calculated using three pieces of information:

  • capital value of your home
  • district rate -set by councils
  • regional rate - set by central government.

Domestic rate bill for householders

The domestic rate bill is calculated as follows:

(Capital Value of your property) X (Domestic District Rate + Domestic Regional Rate) = Amount to be paid

Business rate bill

The business rate bill is calculated as follows:

(Net Annual Valuation of business premises) X (Non-Domestic District Rate + Non-Domestic Regional Rate) = Amount to be paid

Capital value

The capital value of your home is based on the amount the property could reasonably have sold for on 1 January 2005.
