Rating in Brief Election edition

Welcome to Rating in Brief - leading the debate on business rates and policy.

The identity of our next Prime Minister remains too close to call, but a hung parliament appears very likely.

With the smaller political parties possibly having a major say in the running of our country for the first time, the drive towards devolution, regionalisation and localism can only continue apace.

For now, the era of big central government appears to be coming to an end. With it goes the predictability and equality which, today, we mostly take for granted. For business taxpayers, as ever under-represented at government level, an era of even greater uncertainty beckons. When the fog clears, a new taxation landscape will begin to emerge.
