Manchester council to delay business rates to support struggling businesses

Business rates will not be collected in Manchester next month as the city council bids to support those affected by the coronavirus outbreak.

The town hall will not submit claims to banks for any direct debits due in April until the government applies its 100pc retail relief discount.

Special payment plans will be agreed with businesses so that rates due for 2020/21 are split over nine months from July to March next year.

Firms are still being urged to pay what they can and seek advice where possible from their bank or other means of support.

But bailiffs will not be pursuing any overdue business rates - including from retail, hospitality and leisure sectors -  until the end of June.

Other businesses will also be able to request suspension of recovery action, with the council considering requests and organisations based on their circumstances.

Coun Carl Ollerhead, Manchester council’s executive member for finance and human resources, said: “It’s important that we can support businesses and minimise their expenditure while relief and support from central government is put into action.

“We understand this will be a worrying time for business owners of all sizes and we will do what we can to help as the situation evolves.

“Information is available on the council website for business owners, including business rates, sick pay for employees, and links through to the government loan scheme.”
