Inspector assesses whether Celebrity Big Brother house is liable for business rates

Valuation officers are to decide today whether the Celebrity Big Brother
house is liable for business rates.

Following questions from an MP before Christmas, the Valuation Office Agency
sent an inspector to assess whether the house is liable for the council tax
charge.

Experts believe the house is probably not liable for the tax, the
Financial Times reports, because it is only occupied on a temporary
basis.

Likewise, the celebrities are only there for three weeks, which is only a
short period in terms of council tax assessments.
