Changes to the payment process of schools' business rates

ASCL response to the government consultation on changes to the payment process of schools’ business rates.
ASCL welcomes the opportunity to respond to this consultation. 

In principle, ASCL supports the view that changing the operating system may lead to a more streamlined system. However, there are elements of the proposal about which we have concerns. While the consultation states the proposed change does not represent a change in funding levels, we would also want to see confirmation that there will not be additional cost or operational burdens placed on schools
