BHS landlords face £100m business rates on empty stores

Many former BHS landlords are reportedly facing a £100m business rates bill on empty stores, a year after the high street chain collapsed.

BHS liquidators are handing back stores leased by the retailer to landlords, the Mail on Sunday reported.

More than 100 of the 164 BHS stores have still not been let and 50 of those could remain empty in the long term as they are too big or are in undesirable locations.

The newspaper also reported that unsecured BHS creditors are likely to lose 90% of the money owed to them.
