Business rates

 


The Chartered Institute of Taxation (CIOT) has welcomed the launch of a fundamental review of Business Rates in England. The Government published a call for evidence today following an initial announcement at Budget 2020.

The Treasury Committee continued its inquiry into the impact of business rates, with two hearings last week.

Business rates came in for plenty of criticism from expert witnesses during the Treasury Committee's ongoing inquiry into business rates.

The problems with the business rates system cannot be solved by just having more regular revaluations or just copying Scotland's example, the Treasury Committee’s latest evidence session on business rates heard today (7).
