Business Rates – what’s your experience?

Mick Green – Exeter Branch Federation of Small Businesses (FSB)

 If you pay business rates you may know that the government promised to review them.  They are now saying that this may not happen for another two years, but we are lobbying hard on this.  In the mean-time we are looking for case studies that we can use in our lobbying; have you either submitted or are in the process of submitting a business rates query or appeal Or have you had any issues arising from using the business rates reduction service?  The FSB would like to know if the government’s decision to defer the rates review for another two years has affected agreements with your rates reduction provider.  If you would like to be get involved, please contact Michael Green: or 01392 214527.

Richard Frayne of Quickprint will be rowing 50 miles from Ramsgate, UK, to Nieuwpoort in Belgium to raise money and awareness for The Devon Air Ambulance Trust – feel free to find out more here
