April fool or not it happened to me..
I have large workshops out the back of my property as well as a large parking area where my wife parks her ice cream vans… someone grassed us up to the council and they came around to do an inspection for rates. We now pay commercial rates on part of the out buildings and also the parking are.. On the plus side we got a reduction in our house rates as it is now classed as being next door to a commercial property!!!!
It has ended up only costing a £150 a year more with everyting now being fully legal and above board!
