Hampshire trade urges reform of outdated business rates system ahead of budget

It would be ideal to have a system that can recognise the detail of individual circumstances for every business and their property in the UK, each property type in relation to the type of business that it houses would be assessed to ensure that the rateable value would be adequate and fair to both payer and council. This type of system would require a huge amount of skilled staff to assess and maintain these standards, we are heading in the opposite direction with consistent cuts to the valuation office year on year. Its a nice idea but your best bet is still to get a specialist surveyor to review your property for you.
