Kyri Kyp started this petition to Parliament and

Due to the Coronavirus outbreak businesses are preparing for a financial loss. As employees are being advised to work from home and avoid public places; national coffee shops, hairdressers, restaurants, off licenses and other local businesses (retail or corporate) will suffer financially. 

We would like the Government to help businesses with a THREE MONTH BUSINESS RATES RELIEF in order to minimise the financial burden. 

I myself am the owner of a Gentleman's Barbershop in London Victoria with a substantial business rate each month. We rely on passing trade, office clientele and tourists in order to help meet our rates.

The Government are now advising employers to encourage their staff to work from home as well as there being talks of businesses temporarily closing down. In addition, tourism is now on the decline due to flights being cancelled. For this reason, I have started a petition in the hope that we can pause the Business Rates during this uncertain and unsettled period.

In order for this to be reviewed by Parliament we require 100,000 signatures. Please could you help myself and other local small businesses across the country achieve this.

Thank you for reading, signing and hopefully sharing.

Many thanks

Kyri Kyprianou

Director of Valentino’s Barbershop
