No information is available about the domestic rate debit (i.e. gross of non-collection) raised in the year. 2 Calculated as estimated net community charge yield (net of non-payment), divided by the estimated number of chargeable dwellings. The 1991–92 figures is net of £140 per adult community charge reduction grant.

The definition of a non-domestic hereditament was changed on 1 April following the introduction of the national non-domestic rate. There were a number of changes to the definition of a non-domestic hereditament at this time, for example lock up garages were taken out of rating. No information is available about the non-domestic rate debit (i.e. gross of non-collection) raised in the year. 5 Calculated as the rateable value on local rating lists for the year, multiplied by the non-domestic rates multiplier, less estimated rate reliefs, divided by the number of hereditaments on local rating lists. This figure is gross of non-collection, and taken no account of the effect of subsequent appeals on the rates payable for the year. 6 The average rates payable in 1991–92 increased partly as a result of NHS properties transferring to local rating lists on 1 April 1991. 7 The average rate payable decreased in 1992–93 because successful appeals resulted in a lower average rateable value for the year. 8 Calculated as non-domestic rate debit for the local rating list for the year, divided by the number of hereditaments on local rating lists.
