A prescient analysis by the Local Government Chronicle last month modeled the potential impact of the changes to business rates announced by George Osborne on Monday.

 

The LGC examined whether any increased income individual councils get from retaining business rates will compensate for other grant cuts due to be imposed by central government over the next few years.

Percentage share of business rates an area would need to retain locally in order to replace the current level of revenue support grant. A score of 100 indicates that a council would be self-sufficient under Osborne's plans; any figure higher indicates that a council would lose out.
