These documents provide a summary of responses and the government response to the consultation to allow local government to retain 100% of the business rates that they raise locally and the call for evidence on needs and redistribution.
This consultation seeks views on the government’s commitment to allow local government to retain 100% of the business rates that they raise locally. Specifically this consultation seeks to identify some of the issues that should be kept in mind when designing the reforms.
The government has announced it will undertake a fair funding review of what the needs assessment formula should be following the implementation of 100% business rates retention. As a first step, alongside this consultation, the government has issued a call for evidence which sets out the key questions that will need to be addressed as part of this review.
