Autumn Budget 2017: BHA comments on business rates announcement

Ufi Ibrahim, Chief Executive of the British Hospitality Association, said:

“The Chancellor’s announcement of an extension to the £1000 rate relief for small pubs is not nearly enough amounting, as it does, to £20 a week. The decision to review rates every three years, which the BHA has been calling for, is welcome but is of no comfort to those hospitality businesses facing huge rises right now. His decision to bring forward the use of CPI rather than RPI to set business rates is a good one.”
