Government told to take action on unfair business rates

Clearly it’s not just us here at Appeal Business Rates who think that business in the UK are being fleeced: Dr Adam Marshall, director-general of the British Chambers of Commerce has added his voice to the calls for relaxation of the extortionate business rates this country has enacted.

In his own words: “It must stop tinkering around the edges and finally tackle the drag anchor of business rates, which undermine investment and risk-taking and suffocate our high streets.

“It must put its money where its mouth is to support and promote UK trade, to give a leg up to the many thousands of companies whose overseas efforts will make global Britain a reality.

“It must create deeper incentives to encourage businesses of all sizes to move further, faster on carbon reduction and energy efficiency, and it must move infrastructure projects forward, faster, including everything from fixing local roads to expanding our global hub airport at Heathrow.”
