Q2) How many businesses in Stevenage Borough Council's jurisdiction are business-rate paying businesses

Part 2 Again in the absence of clarification I have provided the number of rated assessments and also the number of businesses listed as rate payers they are different as in some instance 2 or more trading entities could be jointly and severally liable to pay the rates on a rateable hereditament where the premises are shared or there is joint ownership for example. Thirdly some business might be exempt due to their small rateable value of their premises for example

2 b) How many rated properties are there in Stevenage  Answer - 4339

2 c) How many rated properties actually pay Money (i.e. Not exempted)?  Answer - 3187
