This message is from Gordon Reay, the MSDC Business Liaison Officer…
There has been a lot of coverage recently in the media about Business Rates. So this seems a good time to remind local small businesses of the availability of SBRR (Small Business Rate Relief) for those who occupy premises with a Rateable Value (RV) of up to £15000. Also to remind those who have not claimed that they can backdate their claim. This relief does have to be claimed – it is not applied automatically.
I have attached a document that provides details of Small Businesses Rates Relief for 2017 /18. Full details here

"“We have been members of BHBPA from its inception, and seen the organisation steadily grow and expand into the dynamic entity it is today, bringing positive benefits to all its members.""
"If Carlsberg did networking they would do it the BHBPA way. Each event is packed with great ideas, thought provoking presentations and fun. As a small business we feel supported and part of the community. We have built friendships and business relationships and there is always plenty of advice on hand to benefit us all so don’t hesitate to join whatever the nature of your business. "
"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."
"“I can’t speak highly enough of the BHBPA. As a small local business we feel very much part of a community and thoroughly enjoy the annual exhibition and meetings throughout the year. Over the years we have built fantastic working relationships with many BHBPA members and every meeting and event offers us opportunities to work with more. This is networking at its best! ” "
