The new business rates year starts on 1 April and it seems an apt time to look at the weird and wonderful rating list descriptions that have built up.
The Government yesterday announced legislative changes to prevent the pandemic and potentially other “market-wide economic changes” being used as grounds to support reduced rateable values.
If you haven’t taken action already then I’d urge you to act quickly before the opportunity is lost.
Hot on the heels of Wednesday’s budget, the government last night published the Local Authority guidance which clarifies the details of how the scheme will operate.
Some staggering figures were announced in the Budget: £20bn in grants and £10bn of relief through the business rates system. What does this mean for councils and businesses?
When Place asked us to be the expert voice on business rates, I was very pleased. Then they dropped the bombshell: “you need to make it sound interesting!”
