“While the chancellor offered businesses a tax cut, with promises that the small business rates multiplier will be frozen for another year, it’s unlikely that many will see it this way. It’s a cost that has not gone up, and for those businesses not qualifying for the lower multiplier, the UBR will increase with the rate of CPI”.
