Have your say on Business Rate Relief
Released: Tuesday, 19 September 2017
Businesses across Adur and Worthing are being invited to have their say on plans to support Business Rates payers from increases in the amount they have been asked to pay.
To support firms whose bills have increased after the national revaluation in April 2017, both Adur District and Worthing Borough Councils will be using extra funds made available by the Government to create a new scheme for discretionary relief.
In 2017/18 this pot will total £115,000 in Adur and £186,000 in Worthing and this money will be used to reduce the amount of Business Rates that are payable.
Before the scheme is introduced, Adur & Worthing Councils are asking local businesses their views on what the scheme should involve.
This includes asking whether businesses with large premises should be excluded and whether companies who have already received another reduction (like pubs) should be awarded the new discretionary relief.
Those completing the survey will also be asked if they believe those deemed eligible should receive a fixed amount or if it should be a fixed percentage of the increase in their bill compared to 2016/17.
The survey will be available online and in paper form until 5pm on Friday 13th October 2017.
