Business rates changes

Small businesses are the lifeblood of East Surrey’s local economy. In Tandridge, business rates will be falling on average by 0.6% and in Reigate & Banstead they will be rising on average 2.9%. Nationally, the new changes mean that three-quarters of businesses will see their rates fall or stay the same. This is part of a £6.7 billion rate relief package, with 600,000 smaller business stopping paying rates all together. Supporting small businesses is one of my key priorities.
