Please submit your form to business.rates@hackney.gov.uk.

Moving your business out of Hackney

Please submit your forms to business.rates@hackney.gov.uk.

We'll send a final bill for your original property and also begin sending bills, with your new account number, to your new address.

You can also tel 020 8356 3466 to tell us you're moving, Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm.

Tell us about any other change to your business or premises

You can report changes to your business or premises by email to business.rates@hackney.gov.uk or tel 020 8356 3466.

By doing this, you make sure you're paying the right amount and don't get a backdated increase in your business rates bill.

  • you make physical changes to your premises
  • the nature of your business changes
  • you sublet part of your property
  • you merge 2 or more properties into 1
  • you are currently receiving a relief or reduction and this should no longer apply
  • the Valuation Office changes the rateable value of your property
  • someone else become jointly liable for the rates with you, for example, you take on a partner
