“Business rates went up so much at revaluation from £88pm to £288pm – literally overnight I shut the property at a second address ASAP to bring my business back under the Small Business Rate Relief threshold and put the second address property back to a residential let. I am fortunate I was able to flip it as many only have holiday let planning permission & can’t do this!”
