Prescription rating in ports ended in March 2005, but prescription applied only to the port operator. Separate properties within ports have always been separately liable for business rates and prior to the ports review around 1,600 were so listed and liable.
We do not hold information for the amount of rates paid by individual businesses, as the calculation of business rates, taking into account any reliefs due, is a matter for the local authority.
However, the 2005 lists rateable values for the named ports are:
|Port||2005 Rating list (before review)||2005 Rating list (post review)||Effective date|
|Hull||9,000,000||3,100,000||1 April 2005|
|Grimsby||1,350,000||500,000||1 April 2005|
|Immingham||17,930,000||11,000,000||1 April 2005|
|Goole||940,000||205,000||1 April 2005|
The rateable values under the 2000 rating lists in some cases varied from year to year, details can be found on the Valuation Office website at:
