Ask Government to urgently review & reform the current Business Rates system

Urgent review & reform of the Business Rates system to create a fair and level playing field for all businesses

Why is this important?

Vibrant and thriving High Streets are important to everyone.

UK High Streets are currently facing a number of major challenges, including our current business rates system that is out-of-date, unfair and hitting some of the smallest retailers the hardest. Although there are also other challenges to be overcome, Government action on this issue would have a quick, positive and significant impact on our high streets.

We are asking the Government for an urgent review and reform of the Business Rates system to help protect the future of the UK High Street and create a level playing field for all businesses.

How it will be delivered

Via Rachael Maskell - Labour and Co-operative MP for York Central

Campaign started in York. Presented in London
