Coronavirus and Business Rates: The Legal Implications, Risks and Opportunities

Available to: Everyone

Recorded 4th June 2020

In this webinar, senior partner with Wilks Head & Eve LLP, Roger Messenger, will examine business rates for local authorities in the context of the current pandemic. He will look at reliefs and exemptions for the ratepayer before, during and after Covid-19; the landscape of grants, payment holidays and discretionary relief; legal challenges; the effect on billing authorities; the repercussions of the delayed 2021 revaluation; and the UKSC decision on ATMs. The webinar will also cover the fundamental review in Autumn 2020; the complex web of liabilities, reliefs and exemptions, who is entitled who is not, and other ratepayer actions seeking relief; as well as the difficulties and the likely timescales.
