Proposals for new pilots must be submitted to the department by 23.59 on Tuesday 25 September 2018.

This prospectus invites local authorities to submit proposals to pilot 75% business rates retention in 2019 to 2020 and sets out the application process and the criteria on which applications will be assessed.

This builds on the government’s manifesto commitment to continue to give local government greater control over the money they raise. The government aims to increase the level of business rates retained by local government from the current 50% to 75% in April 2020.
