Got to look after the rich

Also note the first reason why these people registered them as Businesses is they get tax benefit.

I think they do not have to pay Council tax but pay business rates on those properties. As they are for a small unit low rate-able value and part use for the year and most of them pay nothing.

They are also eligible for other business loan schemes as well.

Financial crisis is always a process of giving money from poor to the rich, and the recovery is for the poor to work harder and harder to earn it back.

Imagine if you had a levy on the unimproved rental value of all land at permitted use. Whether you had a residence on it, or a business, or a residence dressed up as a small business, you'd pay the same. People would behave in much less damaging ways
