HC Deb 27 October 1987 vol 121 c203W
Mr. Raison

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what is his estimate of the likely impact of the proposed unified business rate after revaluation on non-domestic ratepayers in each of the districts of Buckinghamshire, expressed as a percentage change.

Mr. Howard

The table shows the effect on business rates in Buckinghamshire districts if a uniform non-domestic rate had been set in 1987–88 at the present national average poundage. Arrangements for the revaluation of non-domestic property are not yet sufficiently far advanced to predict what the impact will be in Buckinghamshire.

Present poundage Uniform poundage Per cent, change
Aylesbury Vale 220.9p 224.1p +1.5
South Bucks 222.0p 224.1p +1.0
Chiltern 227.2p 224.1p -1.4
Milton Keynes 236.9p 224.1p -5.4
Wycombe 223.8p 224.1p +0.2
