Supporting Small Business — 19 Oct 2021 at 19:18
The majority of MPs voted lower reducing business rates for certain small businesses.
The motion rejected by the majority of MPs in this vote was:
- That this House
- recognises the importance of British businesses to high streets and communities across the UK and the exceptional challenges they face due to the pandemic and rising costs;
- regrets the Government’s current plan to end all temporary support for businesses from April 2022;
- calls on the Government to support businesses by freezing the business rates multiplier and extending the threshold for small business rates relief from £15,000 rateable value to £25,000 in 2022-23; and
- further calls on the Chancellor of the Exchequer to update the House in person before January 2022 on his Department’s assessment of the impact that removing the temporary business support will have on small businesses.
