A Definitive Guide to Business Rates (England/Scotland & Wales)
With so much appearing in the media over recent weeks and months it is easy to get bogged down with the minutia on how and what Business Rates will mean for the average business going forward.
The Government review should already be underway but don't expect any startling changes as the election looms closer and the Chancellor has made it clear than any reforms will have to be "fiscally neutral".
Thanks to the lobbying and politics there has never been so much uncertainty surrounding Business Rates. To try and cut through the headlines and get back to the basic facts, Dunlop Heywood has produced a definitive guide on what Business Rates are and what they could mean for you and your business.
It covers the current rating system with the facts laid out plainly and simply for England, Scotland and Wales. It also touches on Small Business Rates Relief, Empty Property rating, calculations and exemptions.
We have also produced a Northern Ireland version where legislation differs to the mainland UK. Both guides are free to download. Simply go to http://www.dunlopheywood.com/ home page and click on the 2015 Business Rate Guide button to download.
