BCC: Business Rates Review Must Deliver Root and Branch Reform

Commenting on the planned review of business rates announced by the Treasury, John Longworth, Director General of the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) said:

“It is good to see that the government is looking at a wide-ranging review of business rates, as this iniquitous tax hammers businesses across the country, before they’ve even made single pound in profit. The government is asking a lot of important questions in this review - for business however, actions speak louder than words.

“Unless a root and branch reform of business rates is delivered at Budget 2016, business will regard this as a missed opportunity to tackle a huge brake on investment and growth.”
