Statistical information (eg, number of properties per council tax band, average business rates) are a snapshot from the time when this data was last updated. New constuction, demolition, change of use and revaluing means that the number of properties continuously changes, and this takes time to feed through to the published data.

Although Rotherham Borough Council sends out the bills and collects the money, it is not responsible for the entire amount that you owe.

Council tax is levied by a variety of different bodies, including Fire authorities and Police authorities as well as the local councils. Not all of these will apply to every location, but there will usually be more than one authority which levies council tax.

Business rates are set centrally by national government, according to a formula based on the nominal rental value of a property. Local authorities have some discretion to allow Business Rate Relief under certain circumstances, but they cannot vary the basic level at which Business Rates are charged.
