Event description

Description

Business rates are a common issue for our members, both established - long running businesses and start-ups. The combination of high rents and taxes are blighting the entrepreneurial spirit of Londoners, and excludes all but the privileged or those with herculean will to succeed in business at a personal as well as financial cost. The new revaluation exacerbates the crisis.

Our collective and strategic action will build voice ahead of the Chancellor's Budget on 8th March, but more importantly, we will strengthen relationships between allies on this issue, to build efficacy and power to influence policy for the long term.

Together we can make a difference!
