Draft Non-Domestic Rating (Rates Retention and Levy and Safety Net) (Amendment) and (Levy Account: Basis of Distribution) Regulations 2019 — 20 Mar 2019 at 18:16

The majority of MPs voted for greater local business rate retention in certain areas and for a proposed scheme to redistribute business rate income between public bodies in different areas.

The motion supported by a majority of MPs in this vote was:

The regulations enable local councils, and other bodies which receive council tax funding, in Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, East Sussex, Hertfordshire, Lancashire, Leicester and Leicestershire, London, Norfolk, Northamptonshire, North and West Yorkshire, North of Tyne, Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent, Solent, Somerset, West Sussex and Worcestershire to nominally retain 75% of local business rate income.

The regulations also set out how the Government will redistribute business rates income between certain councils.
