FSB complains over business rates relief
The FSB has criticised "shambolic delays" in compensation promised to companies suffering from increases in business rates. The group has written to Sajid Javid, the communities secretary, to raise concerns that many local authorities are yet to establish how they will distribute their share of the £300m hardship fund. More than 500,000 businesses have seen their bills go up, and some suffered rates rises of up to 3,000% following April’s changes.
