NewsRHM proposes alternative package to the Retail Levy 18.10.2011
Today marks the end of the Public Consultation period on the Executive's proposed Rates Levy on large retailers.
The proposed Levy would be the wrong tax at the wrong time - it would send a negative message to footloose retail companies at a time when Northern Ireland has the highest level of retail vacancy in the UK.
Our report published today sets-out an alternative package of measures to improve the Fairness, Efficiency and Effectiveness of the rates system to help SMEs at no extra cost to other ratepayers.
A copy of the report can be downloaded below - we welcome your feedback and any other ideas on how the rates system could be used imaginatively to promote economic development.
