Mo Husseyin started this petition to Rishi Sunak and

ALL BUSINESSES WITH RATEABLE VALUES UNDER £52,000 SHOULD BE EXEMPT FOR THE YEAR 2020/21.

Businesses are now facing unprecendeted times due to the coronavirus (Covid-19). As much as Rishi Sunak has done a good job of looking after our wealth through these hard times, I believe he and his team have made an error with business rates.

It's not only retail, leisure and restaurants that will be affected but ALL businesses from the high street to small manufacturing units and warehouses. There are currently a great deal of businesses that are not getting the relief due to the guidelines the government has issued.

I am a director of a womenswear wholesale company in London, we supply to the high streets and shopping centres which are currently all shut down and receiving relief, however because of the guidelines we are not. This in turn means we have no customer base and we are not sure if we will be returning to one due to the uncertainty the virus has brought. We have  two small units based in Haringey paying a total of £36000 a year £3000 a month. When applying for a grant we was refused due to not being under the government guidelines of retail. This is unfair and unacceptable and may lead us to loosing our company and livelihood which we have run for 20 years. 

It is not only us that is in this position, other local companies are suffering greatly at the risk of loosing their business. 

Please pledge your SUPPORT by sharing and signing this PETITION to ask for BUSINESSES RATE RELIEF for businesses with rateable values under £52,000 for the year 2020/21. Thank you.
