• Should the Small Business Bonus scheme be available to all small businesses and not just those in low rental areas?

• Has being ineligible for the scheme been detrimental to your small business?


Please revisit the small business rate criteria and £18k threshold on rateable value , its killing small operators and costing jobs

Non domestic rates should not be managed by local authorities. Small Business Scheme is crucial for survival of small businesses.
