New consultation on proposed changes to the treatment of holiday lets as businesses in England, closing 16 Jan 19.

Posted on Updated on

MHCLG (Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government) are seeking views on their proposed changes to the treatment of holiday let as businesses in England; a move designed to tackle the alleged practice of classify holiday or second homes as holiday let businesses for the express purposes of avoiding both council and business rates via the mechanism of small business rate relief currently applicable to businesses with a rateable value of  £12k or less.

Please consider distributing to relevant local business partners.  Comment for inclusion in our own and a potential Tourism Alliance response are sought. Comments direct to MHCLG are also encouraged.  The consultation document is available under the consultations main menu tab of Britishdestinations.net or go directly to the page at:
