Join our campaign against the rates hike

This petition had 487 supporters

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
