Cancellation of certain backdated rates liabilities

Types of backdated rates liability that can be cancelled

Through the Localism Act 2011, the government has the power to allow for the cancellation of certain backdated rates bills that accrued on the 2005 rating list only.

This affects some businesses that were affected by unexpected and significant backdated rates where their property was split from another property for rating purposes.

Information on the type of backdated rates liability that can be cancelled is on the Communities and Local Government website, including the Business Rates Information Letter (BRIL) 3/2011

Contact us if you need more information.
