HMT provides business rates review update
Released 19 February 2021
HM Treasury (HMT) has announced that the final report of the Government’s fundamental review of business rates will be published in the Autumn.
The fundamental review of business rates was announced by the Chancellor at last year’s Budget. A call for evidence was published in July 2020 to seek stakeholders’ views on key issues including reforming the rates multiplier and looking at alternative ways of taxing non-residential property. The call for evidence closed last year and the government is current considering responses.
