Increase In Business Rates Postponed For UK Ports

Several ports across the country were due to have their business rates (a local business tax) increased this year as part of a plan devised by the government.

The recommendation to delay the implementation of the tax increase was made in a report by the House of Commons Treasury Sub-Committee.
