Consultation due on scope of project

Could some of the money collected in rates be used for national community-based projects?

It's something being considered by the government as it revisits the modernisation of the rating system.

The policy and reform minister revealed the plans to broaden the scope of the project beyond domestic rates in a statement to Tynwald members last week.

Chris Thomas says some of the income from business rates could be used for wider purposes.
