Business rates

Business rates are additional taxes that you have to pay on top of council tax if you work from home.

When should you be paying business rates if you’re self-employed?

To work out this out, first you should calculate how much you use your home for your self-employed business. This calculation is based on the number of rooms that you work from, or the hours you spend at home working. Whilst it’s up to you how to work this out, your calculations must be deemed “reasonable” by HMRC.

Next, you should contact the Valuation Office Agency (VOA). If you live in Scotland, you should contact your local assessor instead.

If you are liable to pay business rates, you can claim them as an allowable expense in your Self Assessment tax return.
