Event Details

Tuesday 17 September 2013 - 2pm: The Bear Inn, North Street, Wiveliscombe 

The level of Businesses Rates is a major concern for businesses, particularly those operating from premises in town centres.  Whilst rent levels tend to be falling to reflect decreasing demand for space and tenants’ ability to pay, Business Rates remain high, set during a period of greater economic prosperity throughout the UK, but particularly on the High Street.  


The collection and distribution by the Government of Business Rates is a changing scene, and it is currently unclear how that tax is redistributed to local authorities and other public sector bodies to support local service provision.  For their part, Local authorities have discretion to offer relief and subsidies to businesses, but there are considerable cost implications on Councils to do so.


Taunton Deane Borough Council and the 10 Parish Business Group invite you to a meeting to discuss the above issues relating to Business Rates. This will be your opportunity to meet and discuss issues with officials from the Council’s Rates team, and the Valuation Office. It will be an opportunity to gain an understanding of how Business Rates levels are set, how they are collected and redistributed, and what relief may be available.


If you have a specific question to ask please forward it to Hattie Winter - we can pass it on in advance so that Officers can tailor their presentation to your requirements and bring relevant paperwork to help with your enquiry.
