Government Gateway Registration

From 1st April 2017, all business rates will be managed through the Government Gateway portal which allows safe and secure access to all national and local online government services. Ratepayers will be required to register for the Government Gateway and set up a secure account and will then invite their Rating Agent through their portal to manage their case. If you do not already have a government gateway account you will need to register. Once you have registered you can Login to your Government Gateway and follow the steps to claim your property and appoint NG UK Associates as your agent.


When you assign an agent to one of your properties, you will be asked to provide this code.

Follow these steps for Government Gateway Authentication:

1. Register your personal details. (You will be asked to provide your date of birth, national insurance number, passport number etc. This is so the VOA can confirm your identity).

2. Register the Business

3. Claim the Property using the Rating List data on the VOA website.

4. Appoint a professional agent to act on your behalf. (NG UK Associates Agent Code: 38216).

5. If you have more than one property this process will have to be repeated.
