“Business rates will be falling in the Lichfield Parliamentary constituency” says Michael Fabricant.
“This is good news for local traders – the last thing local businesses want now is increased overheads. On average, business in Lichfield District will see their business rates fall by 3.2% while in East Staffordshire it will fall by just under 6%. And from April, where there is only one pub, petrol station, post office, or general store in a village, they will generally receive 100% rate relief.
“And if rates for an individual business is set to rise, there will shortly be a quicker and cheaper way to appeal” adds Michael.
