Turf supplier: Rates/Water rates

Currently agricultural land and buildings are exempt from business rates, but you will have to pay water rates on your turf farm and depot. The local water company will be able to give you some guidance as to how much these will be.

Water rates are generally paid monthly, although some water companies give the option of paying them annually in advance.

Enter in the cash flow the amounts payable in the months you have decided to pay them.

You can find out more about individual water companies' charges on the Ofwat website.
