Event description
Alan Brontë, Director, Rating Policy, Department of Finance will provide information about the Department’s Review of Business Rates

About this Event

The Department of Finance is seeking views on business rates and specifically on the following questions:

• How can revenues from district and regional rates be raised in a way that is fair and equitable and without placing an unacceptable burden on business ratepayers?

• What ways can be found to widen the tax base that could facilitate a lower level of business rates?

• How can a fair distribution between district rates and regional rates be sustained?

• How can a fair distribution between non-domestic and domestic rates be sustained?

• What reliefs and supports are necessary and might be introduced, changed or ended, targeted in line with Executive priorities and recognising ability to pay?

• What alternative taxation options should be considered to complement or partially replace property based non-domestic rates and to allow for lower levels of revenue from business rates?

Alan Brontë, Director of Rating Policy at the Department of Finance will provide information about the Department’s Review of Business Rates and facilitate a 45 minute Q&A session.

Every business concerned about business rates should plan to attend.
