MIPIM UK – Panel Session on Business Rates 20 October 2016
London’s businesses will be forced to hand over an extra £4 billion from their business rates to the treasury over the next five years which will have a negative effect on the capital’s economy. This is not just bad for London it is bad for the whole UK.
