Detail of outcome
This document summarises the responses to the business rates appeals reforms consultation on the statutory implementation and sets out decisions the government has taken, as a basis for introducing regulations by April 2017.
The government published a consultation paper on proposals for a reformed business rates appeals system in October 2015. This paper sought views on proposals for a new 3-stage approach to business rates appeals: ‘check, challenge, appeal’.
Enabling primary legislation has been brought forward via the Enterprise Act 2016 and we are now consulting on the draft regulations.
