Business Rates to be declared on a VAT return

Hi there,
Business Rates are exempt from VAT, however should they still be declared on a VAT return? I am a bit confused by HMRC's guidance

    I have always understood business rates to be outside the scope of VAT and therefore not included on the return. They are like any other tax in that respect.

    Thank you Dinky. I thought this was the case.
