Review of business rates administration announced

A review of the way business rates are administered from 2017 has been announced by the Treasury and the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG). The review will examine the application of rates relief and exemptions, improving communication with ratepayers, changes to the valuation process and the frequency of valuations, but will not review the link between business rates and rental property values. James Lowman, Chief Executive of the Association of Convenience Stores (ACS), said: “This review will provide retailers with a great opportunity to communicate the impact of business rates and how the system can be improved.”
