In October 2015, the government committed that, by the end of the Parliament, local government should retain all taxes raised locally, including 100% of locally collected business rates. This amounts to a significant reform of the local government finance system.
This consultation is part of a process of ongoing engagement and collaboration with interested parties on the design of reforms. It seeks views on some of the detailed aspects of the design of the reformed system.
