This is the rateable value for the property. It is not what you pay in business rates or rent. Your local council uses the rateable value to calculate the business rates bill.

The Valuation Office Agency (VOA) uses a ‘rental’ method to value high street businesses like shops, hairdressers, betting shops and banks.
The VOA gathers information about rents paid for shops and businesses. It analyses the information and works out a price per square metre. It also considers local conditions and things like unusual shops shapes, split levels and sales areas hidden by pillars.
Zoning is used to apply the price per square metre to the property and get the rateable value. Each zone covers the width of the shop and has a depth of 6.1 metres. Zone A starts at the shop window. As you move further into the shop, each zone is half the value of the one before it. Spaces like store rooms or upstairs offices are valued but not as a zone.
Features such as air conditioning and lifts may be shown separately in the valuation.
This property is part of valuation scheme 343923 which groups comparable properties together.
