This paper sets out the challenges and approaches to deliver more frequent business rates revaluations.
At Budget 2016 the government announced it will aim to introduce more frequent (at least 3 yearly) revaluations of properties in England for business rates purposes. This discussion paper sets out the challenges of delivering more frequent revaluations under the current valuation system; and alternate approaches including self-assessment and a formula approach.
The paper does not indicate a government preference and does not discount other options. The paper aims to enable stakeholders to consider the trade-offs of delivering more frequent revaluations against the merits and limitations of the current bespoke valuation system. Stakeholder responses are requested by Friday 8 July 2016.
