Made Group petitions government for 0% Business Rates for the Manufacturing Industry in 2020Westminster
The Made In Group is calling for the UK Government to announce a policy of making business rates for the UK Manufacturing Industry free, 0%, for 2020 as a way to combat the impact that Coronavirus (COVID-19) is having on the manufacturing sector.
Today, the group which represents over 500 businesses across the Midlands and Yorkshire is urging the British government to inject certainty into the economy so that manufacturing businesses can start to plan ahead for the future.
In a recent survey of members, over 80% supported the call for the year-long abolishment of Business Rate, as it has done with other industries, to be extended to the manufacturing sector.
This petition comes as the UK Government has announced that the proposed business rates revaluation in 2021 in England will now be postponed.
