Please note that Devon County Council is not responsible for the collection or administration of business rates, nor do we own or operate any commercial properties.

Therefore, the Council does not hold the information requested.  I understand that responsibility for the collection and administration of business rates rests with each of the District and Unitary Councils in Devon.  Furthermore I understand these organisations may also own commercial properties. I therefore suggest that you contact each of these organisations directly to obtain the information requested
In the interest of providing you advice and assistance, please find details for each of the district councils in Devon on our website
