Respond to the Business Rates consultation

ACCA will be responding to the current consultation on reform of the business rates system, which will affect all businesses that occupy commercial property. We want to hear from members about what your priorities are for rates reform.

The review makes proposals around:

  • support for investment in green plant and machinery
  • other administrative changes to local authority reliefs and grants.
