The first reports in our Changing Face series launched at MIPIM this year. Each report illustrates the transformational change that is occurring in the city, either in terms of the scale of regeneration activity or a shift in perception.

Rating revaluation - Impact on the Midlands
It’s been seven years since the last rating revaluation, the point at which the government reviews the level of business rates levied on non-domestic properties.
Currently, rates are based on the rental value of properties as they were in April 2008. The last planned revaluation – which would have seen rates attuned to mid-recessionary 2013 levels – was postponed by the Government until April 2017, meaning that many businesses have continued to pay their rates at a higher level throughout the tougher economic environment.
