Unpleasant email from local council re business rates

I have recived an unpleasant email from the local council saying they have been "informed" I have a business at my home address, and to give them details such as what part of the premises is used for the business. I practice as an accountant from home and assume they are trying to get me to pay business rates. Has any one had experience of dealing with this issue and what should I be aware of? Should I say I just use a small part of the home or say that there is no specific part used (kitchen table, dining room, using laptop?)  Also I don't do all my work at home but go to clients' premises.
