Non-Domestic Rates: Microgeneration

Volume 493: debated on Wednesday 3 June 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government whether her Department has prepared an impact assessment in respect of changes to the business rate liability of microgeneration equipment to be applied during the 2010 rates revaluation. (276966)

The 2010 revaluation is undertaken under section 52 of the Local Government Finance Act 1988. As we are not introducing a new policy proposal, scheme or new legislation, under the guidance published by BERR on their website, the revaluation does not require an impact assessment.

The purpose of revaluation is to ensure that the liability of a property reflects the market values on 1 April 2008.
