Have your say with the Online Sales Tax (OST) Survey

Posted on in Business News , Cycles News , Political News

The Online Sales Tax (OST) Survey is your opportunity to have your say and help us influence the government regarding the implementation of an OST.
 
The focus of the Government’s consultation is to better understand how such a tax might be designed and the impact it might have.
 
Independent Retail Confederation (IRC) members have always campaigned for lower business rates and the Government has confirmed that income from an OST would be used to reduce rates.
 
It is a complex subject and your insight will greatly help us to submit a quality response to the consultation. It will also help us develop future campaigns on the issue of business rates.
 
Please complete the survey by clicking the button below as soon as possible.
