Non domestic rates (business rates)
Non domestic rates - often referred to as business rates - are charged on most non-domestic properties (including commercial ones) such as shops, offices, pubs, warehouses and factories. If you use a building or part of a building for non-domestic purposes, it is likely that you will have to pay business rates.
Paying an invoice
There are various ways you can pay an invoice.
Services you can provide to the council
Councils in Cumbria use online business portal The Chest, a single point for councils in the North West to advertise contracts. The system brings buyers and suppliers together and allows registered suppliers to receive automatic notification of tender opportunities. It is completely free to all suppliers and available 24/7.
