The British Takeaway Campaign calls for business rates overhaul
The British Takeaway Campaign, an umbrella group representing those involved in the supply and preparation of the nation’s favourite foods, today (29th March 2018) commented ahead of the uplift of business rates on 1st April.
Chair of the British Takeaway Campaign Ibrahim Dogus, said:
"Business rates remain one of the biggest burdens on takeaway restaurants. The latest rise is a timely reminder of the need for Government to do more to support small independent takeaway businesses who are facing a triple whammy of rising business rates, food and labour costs.
"With more than a third
of all takeaway restaurants warning that they would be negatively impacted by
the last rates revaluation, and many firms yet to receive the relief they are
due, the current business rates regime runs the risk of stifling the growth of
an industry worth around £9.4 billion each year.
