SKDC writes off more than £108,000 in unpaid business rates
Unpaid business rates exceeding £100,000 have been written off by South Kesteven District Council as they are "uncollectable".
They include £35,229.06 from the New Era Italian and Continental Restaurant of Westgate, Grantham - a debt which was blamed on changes to its business rates.
A council report said the company initially had a manageable liability based upon a rateable value entitling it to small business rate relief, which was paid by direct debit without any apparent issues.
