Small firms welcome ATM business rates ruling

Responding to the Appeal Court decision that retailers will no longer have to pay separate business rates for cash machines outside their shops,

FSB National Chairman Mike Cherry said:

“Small retailers with ATMs will be relieved to hear the court’s decision, which means cash machines will no longer be given separate rates bills. With high street businesses already up against an outdated and unfair business rates system, this ruling is good news for those retailers that were being hit with extra bills for providing this vital service.

“This is an important step in maintaining access to cash, which is crucial for many small firms and consumers.”
