RPI and CPI September 2017  Business Rates Multiplier (UBR) 2018/19
The September 2017 RPI figure was announced as 275.1 which gave an RPI inflation rate of 3.85%. This WOULD have resulted in a Small Business Non Domestic Rating Multiplier for 2018/19 of 0.484, but from 2018/19 CPI will be used to determine the new multiplier. The CPI inflation rate is 2.97%
Therefore, the Small Business Non Domestic Rating Multiplier for 2018/19 will be 0.480 and the Large multiplier will be 0.493
The provisional multipliers will be confirmed in February 2018
The Scottish multipliers will 0.480 and 0.506, and the Welsh multiplier will be 0.514
Non Domestic Rating Multiplier (UBR) 2017/18
The Small Business Non Domestic Rating Multiplier for England for 2017/18 is 0.466 the full multiplier for England in 2017/18 is 0.479
The Scottish Poundage Figure for 2017/18 is 0.466 or 0.492 for large properties
The Welsh multiplier for 2017/18 is 0.499
Non Domestic Rating Multiplier (UBR) 2016/17
The Small Business Non Domestic Rating Multiplier for England for 2016/17 is 0.484 the full multiplier for England in 2016/17 is 0.497
The Scottish Poundage Figure for 2016/17 is 0.484 or 0.510 for large properties
The Welsh multiplier for 2016/17 is 0.486
RPI September 2015  Estimated Multiplier (UBR) 2016/17
The September 2015 RPI figure has been announced as 259.6 which gives an inflation rate of 0.8%. This should result in a Small Business Non Domestic Rating Multiplier for 2016/17 of 0.484, so, if the supplement for Small Business Rate Relief (SBRR) remains unchanged at 0.013 then the full multiplier for England in 2016/17 will be 0.497
The provisional multipliers will be announced in December 2015 and confirmed in February 2016
The Scottish multipliers will probably be the same as England, and the Welsh multiplier should be 0.486
Business Rates Multiplier (UBR) for 2015/16
New in Calcurate 10.6  Localism Act Discount for Transitional Relief
The September 2014 RPI figure was 257.6 which should have resulted in a Small Business Non Domestic Rating Multiplier for 2015/16 of 0.482, however, in the Autumn Statement it was announced that the increase in the Small Multiplier for England would be capped at 2%. This gives a figure of 0.480. The supplement to fund Small Business Rate Relied (SBRR) will however be increased from 0.011 to 0.013. This gives a full Multiplier of 0.493
The Scottish multipliers will be the same as England, and Wales will also adopt the 2% cap
Other measures announced in the Autumn Statement were the extension of the Enhanced SBRR scheme for another year, an increase in the maximum retail discount for 2015/16 to £1,500 and 'Transitional Relief' (via the Localism Act) for the final two years of the list, for RV's of 50,000 or less.
