Thunderclap campaign seeks fair business rates for retail

Spring Fair organiser i2i backs initiative.
Publish date:

Trade show Spring Fair International is backing Thunderclap, which seeks to raise awareness about the Fair Rates for Retailers campaign. 

The online petition already has over 1,200 signatures of support.

i2i found that 72 per cent of retailers think rising business rates are 'the most serious issue affecting the health and future survival' of our High Streets and town centres.

£175 million could be added to the industry rates bill next year as the Retail Prices Index measure of inflation was 2.6 per cent in September.

Spring Fair will be holding The Big Retail Debate at Spring Fair International 2013.
