Holiday Lets

If your property is available for let for 140 days or more a year, it will be rated and valued for non-domestic Business Rates. Please note that ‘available’ refers to the time you have made the property available to let, not the actual number of days that it has been occupied as a holiday let over the year. For example, if you advertise your property for let from the beginning of May to mid-September, you will be liable to pay Business Rates.

More information about self-catering and holiday let accommodation is available on the GOV.UK website.

For further advice, or to register your property for non-domestic Business Rates, please contact the Business Rates team.

 

Guest Houses & B&B’s

To be included in the ratings list and attract a non-domestic rates bill, a guest house or bed & breakfast establishment will generally be able to accommodate 6 or more persons per night. The property would then be considered as a composite property. This means the residential side of the property will be included in the domestic Council Tax ratings list and the guest house / bed & breakfast part would be included under non-domestic Business Rates.

When establishing the rateable value of the non-domestic (business) part of the property, the following factors are considered:

  • The number of bedrooms; whether singles, doubles or family rooms, basic or en suite.
  • The location and quality of the accommodation.
  • The presence of the non-resident restaurant facilities.
