require each local authority to provide an estimate of their
Non-Domestic Rates income for the 2018/19 financial year. This
forecast includes a section to record the potential losses from
rateable value appeals.
SRP partners (Ipswich, Babergh &
Mid Suffolk) have appointed Wilks Head and Eve to undertake a
forensic analysis of the current 2017 rating list to provide a
forecast on the potential losses from appeal.
Contract Standing Orders have been
waived in line with the constitution because the cost for
Ipswich would be less than the £10k limit. It also ensures a
continued consistent approach to providing an appeal provision
across SRP and avoids the added costs of undertaking a procurement
exercise for the 3 authorities.
