Mansfield & Ashfield 2020 together we mean business

​Mansfield 2020 Lobbying for Freeze on Business Rates.

Mansfield 2020 sought the support of local MP Alan Meale to enable businesses to plan, budget and control their finances.

Businesses have seen rates increase over the last 3 years, way, above inflation and through a very difficult economic recession, falling property valuation and rental market.

Mansfield 2020 believes businesses need to know that Government is listening to them, supporting them and helping them to survive.

Sir Alan Meale has joined other politicians from around the region to call on Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne to introduce an immediate two year freeze on business rates.

The call was outlined in a Commons early day motion tabled by Sir Alan and signed by 18 members from across the political spectrum.

For businesses to start investing and moving forward they need stability, confidence for the future and backing.
