Join our campaign against the rates hike
The Government's revaluation of business rates will hit Lambeth businesses hard.
Some businesses will face rises of up to 45% when the new rates come into force from this April.
Rents have already increased dramatically in recent years and the added burden of a huge rates rise will have a negative impact on jobs, investment and the health of our high streets.
We are calling for the Government to:
- Provide transitional relief that will enable small and large businesses to plan for rate rises
- Give positive consideration to mitigating proposals that will enable London businesses to generate the income needed to meet the rise
- Create an increased inner and outer London Small Business Rates Relief threshold that reflects the specific problems faced by small businesses in the capital.
- Commit to a long-term review of the effectiveness of business rates as a way of taxing business
