Local TD puts forward bill to reform how rates are calculated

John McGuinness is calling on the Government to adopt a set of recommendations he has put forward to reform the rates system.

The Fianna Fail Deputy says the current system is outdated and needs to be overhauled.

He has introduced a bill that would see a uniform mechanism to calculate rates across Ireland in place of the 15 different ways that exist now.

Deputy McGuinness told KCLR news that businesses need certainty.john-mcguinness-TB
