Bira offers statement to incoming Chancellor

Bira is calling upon Rishi Sunak to retain plans for business rates reform, and for the implementation of a digital services tax so that large internet businesses pay more.

Yesterday, Mr Sunak was appointed chief finance minister following Sajid Javid's resignation amid Boris Johnson's Cabinet reshuffle.

Bira's CEO, Andrew Goodacre, said: "We hope the new Chancellor retains what has been set out in its manifesto, and what it has said about business rates reform, digital service tax and its support of independent retailers on the high street."

The Cabinet reshuffle also saw Alok Sharma take up the role as Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). He takes over from Andrea Leadsom.

Of the appointment, Goodacre said: "We also hope the new Minister for BEIS focuses on providing support to independent retailers on the high street."
