Ways and means motion

MPs approved a ways and means resolution relating to the Growth and Infrastructure Bill on 27 November 2012.

The motion allows the government to change the dates on which non-domestic rating lists are calculated as part of reforms under the Growth and Infrastructure Bill.

The Valuation Office Agency prepares a new rating list for each council every five years that shows the taxable value of all non-domestic properties in its area. The list shows all properties in the area, their taxable values, and their descriptions.

The Growth and Infrastructure Bill aims to speed up large-scale business and commercial projects, relax rules on developers to deliver social housing, and make it easier to install broadband infrastructure.

It was introduced in the House of Commons on 18 October and is currently in committee stage.
