Business Rates Autumn Budget Highlights

Published on: 22nd November 2017

Philip Hammond, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, gave his first Autumn budget to parliament today and we have pulled together the headlines for business rates:

Key Business Rates Highlights

- Business rates annual increase to be based on CPI rather RPI brought forward to April 2018
- Discount for pubs, with a rateable value less than £100,000, extended for a further year
- After 2022 revaluation, future revaluations to take place every three years
- Staircase tax to be axed

 Our Thoughts

Graham Isle, business rates expert in our Leeds team commented on today’s budget, focusing on the changes to business rates and how this will affect businesses across England and Wales.

“During the budget it was announced that from next April (2018) the annual rates increase will be based off the lower Consumer Price Index rather than the Retail Price Index. Before today’s announcement it had been promised that this change would be made in 2020 so it’s great to see the decision brought forward as early estimates indicate it could bring about a benefit of £2.3billion to small businesses over the next five years.

“It was also good to hear that following the next revaluation in 2022 the government plan to increase the frequency of revaluations from once every five years to once every three years. Moving forward this should ensure that business rates bills are more in line with properties market value and enable fairer bills to be generated.

“There was also welcome news for thousands of businesses occupying workplaces split across multiple floors as Hammond announced he would axe the staircase tax. Despite the ruling, businesses affected will need to continue paying their current bill until legislation is approved and the Valuation Office Agency make the amendments. Unfortunately, this may take time, which isn't good news for businesses in the short term. 

“Following the success of the business rates discount for pubs it was declared that this would be extended until May 2019, good news for the leisure sector as roughly 90% of pubs currently benefit from the £1,000 discount.

“In other news It was also announced that local authorities would now be able to charge 100% council tax on empty properties to penalise those with vacant properties and hopefully increase housing availability across the country.”

Business Rates Bills to increase by 3.9% from April 2018

Since last year the Retail Prices Index (RPI) has almost doubled, from 2% in September 2016 to 3.9% in September 2017, on figures released by the government on 17th October. The RPI is an index that shows the changes in the cost of living throughout the UK and each year business rates are adjusted using the index to generate the Uniform Business Rates Multiplier, which helps determine how much businesses pay.

Graham Isle, partner in our business rates team commented on the announcement, “The announcement earlier this month will be a very unwelcome one for many businesses that are already facing a number of increasing financial pressures.

“It is estimated that the increase of 3.9% could cause business rates bills to increase by over £1.1billion next year, with the retail sector alone facing increases of over £300million.

“This only adds further pressure to the government to bring forward the change of measuring the multiplier using the lower rate of the Consumer Price Index, a change which has been promised to happen in 2020.”

It was also announced today that for the first time in over five years the UK inflation rate reached 3%, up from 2.9% in August.

The rise in the inflation rate to its highest level since April 2012 has been caused by an increase in food and transport prices and a fall in the value of the pound, causing the cost of imported goods to increase.

Changes in the way business rates are appealed

On the 1st April 2017 the new rating lists were published across England and Wales and from that date, businesses looking to challenge their business rates were required to do so through HMRC’s Government Gateway. One of the biggest changes to business rates following the 2017 Rating Revaluation was the introduction of the ‘Check, Challenge, Appeal’ in an attempt from the government to reform the rating appeal system. A key component of the new system is that it will be necessary for ratepayers to set up a secure Government Gateway account, add their properties and appoint an agent to act on their behalf by electronically managing the check, challenge and appeal process.
