UKHospitality has joined with other trade bodies to call for Government action on business rates.

 The trade body has co-signed a joint letter, along with other bodies, calling for the Treasury Committee’s vital inquiry into the impact of rates to be completed as a priority.

UKHospitality Chief Executive Kate Nicholls said: “The UK’s business rates system is unfit for purpose and has directly contributed to decline on our high streets. Hospitality businesses have been hammered by a broken system that no longer reflects the realities of business in the 21st Century.

“Hard-pressed businesses were promised a full review of the system in the 2017 Conservative Party General Election manifesto that has not been fulfilled. We need decisive action, outlined in the Queen’s Speech, to totally overhaul the system as a priority.”
