Westminster City Council responds to business rates

Wed, 08/03/2017

Cllr Robert Davis MBE DL, Westminster City Council Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Business, Culture and Heritage, said: “The targeted business rate help that was announced for pubs and small businesses by the Chancellor is good news. We await the full details, particularly on the £300m discretionary relief fund for local authorities.

“Westminster collects over 8% of national business rates, so we hope that we will be able to use some of this additional local authority funding to reduce the burden on our businesses and encourage growth.

“The debate in recent weeks has been a good one, and we look forward to continuing to work with the government and Westminster’s business community in future to consider how the business rate system can be improved further for all.”
