Business Rates Retention Consultation PC11-16

Provisional Response Position Of NALC

The National Association will be responding to this consultation and arguing that parishes should be exempted from payment of National Non Domestic Rates on buildings they own or manage including public conveniences. We will also be arguing that Government and the LGA need to at this time of onward devolution strongly encourage principal authorities to engage in formal agency and service level agreements and contracts with parishes in their areas so that parishes too can derive some of the windfall from this 100% local retention of the business rate – to plough back into their communities.

This consultation closes on 26 September, 2016.

Please send comments you may have to inform NALC's own response - to chris.borg@nalc.gov.uk by at the latest 09:00 a.m. on Wednesday, 21 September, 2016.
