Entrepreneurs will be given greater freedom to start up a business from their home as part of new measures announced by the Government.
These include legislation to make it easier to run a company from a rented property and new guidance on business rates clarifying that, in most circumstances, home-based firms will be exempt.
Planning guidance is also being updated to make it clear that planning permission should not normally be required to run a business from home
The law is to be changed so that landlords can be assured that agreeing to a business start-up within their property will not undermine their residential tenancy agreement.
A new model tenancy agreement will also be made available.
