Business rates are often labelled as the cause of high street decline and business groups have called for their reform, or total abolition to support local economic growth. The Chancellor has announced a long-awaited review of the system. So what issues should this review address and what changes should be made?

At this event, Centre for Cities’ Senior Analyst Kathrin Enenkel and Credit Capital Advisory’s Founder and CEO Tom Aubrey will present our recommendations for reforming the business rates system before handing over to Adam Marshall, Chief Executive of the British Chamber of Commerce and Melanie Leech, Chief Executive of the British Property Federation for their responses.

Their contributions will be followed by a Q&A session chaired by Centre for Cities’ Chief Executive Andrew Carter.

This event is free but places are limited so please register below.
