All rates are for a 12-month period. See methods of payment.

Rate definitions: Within Silver and Gold we have rates for both small and large businesses. A large business is one with 5 or more staff (including agency and contractors) calculated on a full-time equivalent basis over the year. Using this approach, most B&Bs and self-catering accommodation, and many attractions, activities, pubs, restaurants and shops are small businesses.

For clarification, we consider tourism businesses to include: all forms of accommodation, activities, attractions, shops, restaurants, pubs, cafes, local producers and any aiming to attract visitors to their business.
