||<p>The government undertook the last fundamental review of business rates in 2016
and announced major reforms worth approx. £9bn to businesses by the end of the parliament.
At Autumn Budget 2017, the government delivered more support on business rates including
businesses’ top priorities to bring forward the switch to CPI indexation, revalue
properties more frequently and to address the staircase tax. As a next step, the government
is also reviewing the wider taxation of the digital economy. This includes ensuring
international corporate tax rules deliver fair results across different businesses
and that sellers operating through online marketplaces pay the right amount of VAT.</p>
