The British Retail Consortium (BRC) is to embark on a programme of work that will examine how business taxes operate in our rapidly-changing retail environment.

"The British Retail Consortium (BRC) is looking at the relationship between the fast-developing retail landscape and the tax regime — now and for the future," British Retail Consortium Director General Helen Dickinson said.

"The reality is that retail is a people and property intensive sector and, while the reduction in headline Corporation Tax is valuable, other taxes on both people and property have continued to rise.

"This is an ongoing discussion and it's important to consider carefully how the tax system can best meet the interests of consumers, economic growth, stability and the retail sector as a whole over the longer term."
