Government proposals that local councils can retain business rates will give incentives for growth, but with some funding inequalities across councils

By Henry G. Overman

This week sees the launch of a government consultation on allowing local authorities to retain business rates. Henry Overman looks at the pros and cons of the proposals and finds that while the proposals may give local authorities a greater incentive to provide more sites for businesses, they may also lead to some funding inequalities across councils
