Retailers rail against business rates regime


To balance this report out slightly, we are in a lower secondary/tertiary area which had low business rates. Since the review, the rateable value is low enough so no business rates are charged at all. So the review has helped small businesses. Retailers always have a choice. They can either stay in the areas which charge higher rates and adjust their business model accordingly, or move to areas which change much lower or as in our case, no rates at at all. I fail to see how the endless moaning about business rates is going to change anything. Adapt your business. You don't have to be in 'so-called' position A, B or even C to be successful. If retailers do not move on, then neither will their landlords...
