Business Rates Bills to increase by 3.9% from April 2018

Published on: 27th October 2017

Since last year the Retail Prices Index (RPI) has almost doubled, from 2% in September 2016 to 3.9% in September 2017, on figures released by the government on 17th October.

The RPI is an index that shows the changes in the cost of living throughout the UK and each year business rates are adjusted using the index to generate the Uniform Business Rates Multiplier, which helps determine how much businesses pay.

Graham Isle, partner in our business rates team commented on the announcement, “The announcement earlier this month will be a very unwelcome one for many businesses that are already facing a number of increasing financial pressures.

“It is estimated that the increase of 3.9% could cause business rates bills to increase by over £1.1billion next year, with the retail sector alone facing increases of over £300million.

“This only adds further pressure to the government to bring forward the change of measuring the multiplier using the lower rate of the Consumer Price Index, a change which has been promised to happen in 2020.”

It was also announced today that for the first time in over five years the UK inflation rate reached 3%, up from 2.9% in August.

The rise in the inflation rate to its highest level since April 2012 has been caused by an increase in food and transport prices and a fall in the value of the pound, causing the cost of imported goods to increase.

Changes in the way business rates are appealed

On the 1st April 2017 the new rating lists were published across England and Wales and from that date, businesses looking to challenge their business rates were required to do so through HMRC’s Government Gateway. One of the biggest changes to business rates following the 2017 Rating Revaluation was the introduction of the ‘Check, Challenge, Appeal’ in an attempt from the government to reform the rating appeal system. A key component of the new system is that it will be necessary for ratepayers to set up a secure Government Gateway account, add their properties and appoint an agent to act on their behalf by electronically managing the check, challenge and appeal process.

Barclay review into business rates is a step in the right direction for Scotland

In a report that has been keenly anticipated by the business rates sector, the Barclay review group published their Scottish business rates review earlier this week. The Barclay review group was created to provide recommendations on reforming the current business rates system in Scotland. The group is chaired by Ken Barclay, former banker at the Royal Bank of Scotland and met numerous times over the past few months to compile the report.

In a report that has been keenly anticipated by the business rates sector, the Barclay review group published their Scottish business rates review earlier this week.

Graham Isle, partner in our business rates team commented on the report, “This was a very welcome report for the Scottish business rates system, much like the current system in England it is in dire need of reform.

“The report has highlighted a number of key recommendations to the Scottish Government and I look forward to hearing their response. In particular, it will be interesting to hear what Secretary for Finance, Derek Mackay has to say, as he welcomed the review’s publication and remarked that the government would respond swiftly”.

“I believe that the key recommendations within in the review are the call for more frequent revaluations and a reduction in the period between valuation and implementation of the new valuations, currently this takes two years and means at the start of each rating list many property valuations are already outdated.

“There are also calls for the small business bonus scheme to be evaluated, town centres to be provided with more support by expanding fresh start relief and the large business supplement reduced.”

If you have any questions on the report or would like to find out more information, please contact Graham on 0113 221 6119.
