Ratepayer warning for Sedgemoor firms
7:30pm Wednesday 30th October 2013 in News
BUSINESSES are being urged to contact Sedgemoor District Council after it was revealed that some traders have been signing up to private agents.
“Distressed” business ratepayers have contacted the council after agreeing to sign up to an agent who said they would help them appeal their rateable value with the Valuation Office.
A SDC spokesman said: “Ratepayers could be tied into paying agents 50% of business rates to March 31, 2017, and the next national revaluation.”
Ratepayers should call the Revenues Team on 0845-4082540/01278-435435 or email email@example.com
