A regional breakdown of business rates collected in England is published in table 2.3e of ‘Local Government Financial Statistics (England) No 18’, which can be found at

This document also (in table 2.3d) sets out the receipts collected each year connected to assets that cannot be allocated by region (e.g. telecommunications networks and oil pipelines).

Business rates in Scotland and Wales and district rates in Northern Ireland are a devolved matter. Data can be obtained from the relevant devolved administration.
