Non-domestic Rates

Volume 471: debated on Thursday 31 January 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government whether transitional relief will be applied to the rates levied through (a) supplementary business rates and (b) business improvement districts (i) at and (ii) following the 2010 business rates revaluation. (182585)

Although decisions have yet to be taken on many aspects of the transitional relief scheme for the 2010 revaluation, there are no plans to change the arrangement which excludes from the current transitional relief scheme amounts payable through BID levies. Also, ‘Business rate supplements: a White Paper’ makes clear that transitional relief will not be applied to supplements.
