To Philip Hammond - Chancellor of the Exchequer

Petition text

Scrap the planned changes to business rates - small family businesses shouldn't suffer while big companies like amazon pay less tax.

Why is this important?

The government wants to give Amazon a tax break, whilst slapping small family businesses with higher taxes at the same time.

38 Degrees members believe that tax is important - it pays for our NHS, education for everyone and a safety net for those who need it. But the government’s new tax rules just don’t make sense - they’re based on the location of businesses rather than how big they are.

The more of us that sign, the more pressure the government will feel. So please can you add your name now?
