BUSINESS RATES

This is a short post. I understand that a Government body is responsible for determining the rateable value of businesses in Scotland. How transparent is this process? I am aware of one inconsistency. But no explanation has so far been forthcoming. The affected business may be closing because of lack of transparency and an apparent refusal to engage in a valid complaint. I assume there are other cases. I wonder whether there is a case for a formal inquiry into the practices of this Government body. Comments welcome.
