Non-Domestic Rating (Rates Retention) and (Levy and Safety Net) (Amendment) Regulations 2017 - Motion to Approve (20 Mar 2017)

Lord Young of Cookham: My Lords, the business rates retention scheme, which was introduced in 2013-14, allows local government in England as a whole to retain 50% of the business rates it collects locally. These regulations change the regulatory framework governing the day-to-day operation of the business rates retention scheme. The changes, which are highly technical, are necessary, first, to ensure that the...

Written Answers — Department for Communities and Local Government: Non-domestic Rates and Revenue Support Grant (10 May 2016)

Marcus Jones: Our business rates tax cuts provide significant support to local businesses. The Small Business Rate Relief measure announced at the Budget which starts in 2017-18 will mean 600,000 of the smallest businesses will not have to pay business rates. We will compensate local authorities, in full, for the loss of income as a result of this measure, in the same way as we have done for every other...

Scottish Parliament: Fife Economy (Support) (9 Oct 2013)

John Swinney: On an annual basis, the business rates relief package over which the Government presides saves businesses in Scotland about £570 million in reduced business rates. In Fife, more than 5,500 business properties currently benefit from the small business bonus scheme and have saved almost £36 million in business rates taxation since the Government introduced the scheme. By...

Opposition Day — [7th Allotted Day] — Zero-hours Contracts: High Streets (16 Oct 2013)

Simon Danczuk: Business rates are clearly mentioned in the motion, and Labour Front Benchers have made it clear that there will be a review of business rates under a Labour Government. Postponing the revaluation of business rates does nothing to help small businesses. Because of this postponement, retailers in Rochdale are subsidising retailers on Regent street in London. That is unacceptable. The...

[Martin Caton in the Chair] — Business Rates (30 Oct 2012)

Ann Coffey: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Caton. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Rochdale (Simon Danczuk) on securing this important debate on business rates and on his comprehensive analysis of the effect that increased business rates will have on our high street. Like many towns, Stockport is being squeezed extremely hard at the moment. We have one of the highest...

Written Ministerial Statements — Communities and Local Government: Local Government Finance (5 Dec 2011)

Bob Neill: This Government are determined to support businesses—large and small—to support growth and build a stronger economy.

We will: double the levels of relief available to small business ratepayers for a further six months on top of the existing two-year scheme; and enable...

Taxation: Beer and Pubs — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (31 Oct 2017)

Toby Perkins: I will finish with this. We have spoken a lot about beer duty and VAT, but it is crucial that the issue of business rates is addressed in the Budget. Every member of the Conservative party who stood in the 2015 election stood on a manifesto of a comprehensive review of business rates. That seemed to disappear from the 2017 manifesto, but the issue of business rates is crucial. We have the...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Economy (5 Feb 2004)

Murdo Fraser: Mr Mather must be aware that business rates in Scotland are higher than those in the rest of the UK. That is a business tax that we could cut now. Business rates are a more effective weapon than corporation tax. Only one in four businesses in Scotland pays corporation tax, while virtually every business pays business rates. If we must choose a weapon to use, business rates are far more...

Public Bill Committee: Business Rate Supplements Bill: Clause 13 (27 Jan 2009)

John Healey: ...;the hon. Gentleman describes them as “habitable”—mean that it would not be eligible for empty property relief. I think he means that, as an empty property, it would not be liable for business rates rather than for the relief. I shall double check this, but essentially our approach is that if a property is liable for business rates and falls within the liability criteria for...

Public Bill Committee: Localism Bill (27 Jan 2011)

Jessica Bauly: From the CBI’s point of view, there was a lot of nervousness about opening up the issue of uniform business rates across the country. At the moment, businesses value the business rate system because of the predictability, certainty and uniformity that it offers them. Any stepping stone to relocalising business rates implies extra costs for businesses in calculating what...

Scottish Parliament: Business Rates (Review) (9 Sep 2015)

John Swinney: ...;s existing rates relief regime. I will cite one example. Following the closure of the Vion factory, one suggestion that was made to me on promoting the recovery of the Broxburn area was the removal of business rates for companies in Broxburn High Street. When I investigated the matter, I found that only one business in that street was paying business rates, and all the rest were getting...

Written Answers — Communities and Local Government: Non-domestic Rates (15 Oct 2012)

Brandon Lewis: The Government's proposals for business rates retention will enable local authorities to benefit from the business rates paid by all businesses in their area, including those from low-carbon energy projects. In addition, the rates retention proposals have been designed to ensure that the business rates from any new renewable energy projects are not taken into account in the calculation of...

Energy and Climate Change: Topical Questions (27 Feb 2014)

Tessa Munt: Under the current business rates arrangements, businesses have very little incentive to increase energy efficiency as investing in premises can lead to higher business rates. Did the Secretary of State see last week’s British Retail Consortium proposals for modernising business rates, suggesting a scheme whereby energy efficiency and improvements are rewarded with lower business rates,...

Written Answers — Department for Communities and Local Government: General Practitioners: Non-domestic Rates (20 Oct 2015)

Marcus Jones: Information on the business rates paid by GP surgeries is not held centrally. My Department continues to work with authorities affected by the business rates appeals on GP surgeries to understand the impact on local authority finances. Under the business rates retention scheme, local authorities or pools of local authorities are protected against significant declines in business rates income...

Amendment of the Law (8 Mar 2017)

Simon Danczuk: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for South West Bedfordshire (Andrew Selous). In my speech, I shall concentrate mostly on business rates. The Chancellor was right to say that the business rates scheme must better reflect the digital economy—firms such as Amazon have had an unfair advantage over high-street companies for far too long—but I suspect that some business...
