Are you a workspace provider /owner/manager?
Would you like to?
- Learn more about business rate relief
- Meet other workspace providers
Workspace including incubators, accelerators and co working spaces, artist’s studio, and maker spaces, play an important role in the continued success of the London’s economy. However, many workspaces providers are facing financial difficulties due to high cost of business rates. This has an adverse impact in the ability of the sector in ensuring the businesses, particularly micro businesses and start ups are able to find and secure affordable workspaces.
Following a research commissioned by the London Enterprise Action Partnership (LEAP), into the impact of the 2016/2017 business rates revaluation on co workings paces, the London Growth Hub has commissioned workshops and networking events that will be delivered by the London Business Partnership. The workshops will focus on:
- Business rates and how they are calculated
- Business rate relief and the eligibility criteria
- Best practice when applying for business rate relief
The workshops offer a fantastic opportunity for workspace providers to meet with local authorities to discuss how they can work together to simplify the process of applying for business rate relief. They are scheduled to take place across London – please click here for list of areas where the workshops will be held and how to register. Please note, more events will be added as they are confirmed.
