Have your business voice heard on Business Rates

Write to your MP using our template letter and Tweet #LDNBizRates

FSB is extremely concerned about the impact the new 2017 revaluation will have on small businesses across London. We have recently produced a report with other business groups and the Mayor’s Office to urge the Government to make urgent changes and long term reform to this unfair and regressive tax.

FSB is calling on the Chancellor to create an increased inner and outer London Small Business Rate Relief threshold that reflects the specific problems faced by small businesses in the capital. In inner London we believe the threshold should be £20,000 RV for 100 per cent relief tapering to £23,000. In outer London where rateable values have increased by a lower percentage, we believe the threshold for 100 per cent relief should be set at £15,000 tapering to £18,000.

You can support our campaign by:

  • Writing to your MP asking them to lobby the Chancellor to give London a different threshold to the rest of the UK using our template letter 
  • Tweeting about business rates using #LDNBizRates and @fsblondon
