We are interested to hear from members of the legal profession regarding any issues that you may be facing with obtaining Business Rates grants. In particular we are interested to hear the issues faces with those members who are not entitled to small business rate relief for their premises.
The reason why we are interested in this information is because we currently consider the government approach to be potentially unlawful as it discriminates against solicitors, accountants, tax advisor and medical practices from being entitled to grants as they are not classed as retail unit. Further, we also take issues with government’s policy to prevent businesses to obtain the grant when they hold a rateable value in excess of 51,000.
We would like to hear from you if you are experiencing any of the issues as above. Please contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. All emails will be dealt with confidentially.
