30 seconds to support members on business rate relief and VAT

NDNA is urging everyone to sign this petition to abolish business rates for childcare providers in England. 

The number of signatures required to ensure a Government response to the petition is 10,000 by 5 October. The number of signatures currently stands at over 2,000. The more signatures, the stronger our voice. 

The petition takes 30 seconds to complete and requires your name, email address and postcode. Once you have submitted your support online, you will need to click a link which is emailed to you to verify your submission.  

Purnima Tanuku OBE, Chief Executive of NDNA, said: “We urge everyone to get behind this petition by signing and sharing it. 

“We hope everyone can see the importance and the difference this petition could possibly make for childcare providers struggling with the implementation of 30 hours expanded childcare in future. 

“We have long campaigned for the exemption from business rates for childcare providers and have seen big changes in Scotland, Wales and Harrogate already.

“Please let your voice be heard and sign the petition before the deadline to help make a difference.” 

We will continue to push the business rates issue in the run up to the looming petition deadline and the autumn budget to put pressure on the Government. 

Please encourage family and friends, directly affected by the tax on nurseries or otherwise, to sign up as well.
