An introduction to business rates, how it is calculated and paid, and where the monies collected are distributed.
The administration and collection of business rates is carried out by the Credit Control section of Boston Borough Council. Part of the revenue raised by us is retained locally by the council and part is sent to central government and to Lincolnshire County Council.
