Local Small Business Owner Victimised by Manchester City Council
05 Nov 2020
Abid Halim is the proprietor of Shoe Box on Dickenson Road in Longsight. Like many small businesses, Mr. Halim is entitled to small business rates relief. However, Manchester City Council has repeatedly refused to grant it. Instead, Manchester City Council has served Mr. Halim with a Bankruptcy Petition, in spite of the fact that Mr. Halim does not owe Manchester City Council anything at all. The hearing will be on 17th November.
