The impact of Business Rates on business inquiry
The Treasury Committee have completed the first stage of an inquiry into Business Rates to scrutinise how Government policy has impacted business.

The committee report listed my submission about why shops are left empty due to “vacant rates”, but the Conclusion and Recommendations were on a far grander scale. The detail within the submissions from rating experts is a true education on the subject, and I would urge landlords and tenants to make their views known during the second stage.
