Local businesses are being invited to take part in an emergency summit into the business rates crisis.

The Inverurie Business Association (IBA) is holding the meeting at Thainstone Centre, Inverurie at 7am on Friday.

It is hoped the event will bring together IBA members and local business owners and managers.

Experts will be on hand to discuss the impact this will have on the local area and equip businesses with information and ways to appeal rates increases.

Experts include Ian Milton, assessor for the Grampian area who set the proposed rateable values, Gillian Martin, MSP for Aberdeenshire East, and Eric Shearer, partner at Knight Frank Aberdeen who has been involved in collating information and putting a case to the Scottish Government on the business rates increases.

There will also be a Q&A with James Bream, research and policy director at Aberdeen & Grampian Chamber of Commerce and Lorna Greig, associate partner at Ryden Aberdeen.

Representatives from Aberdeenshire Council, including councillor Richard Thomson, will also be in attendance.

Booking is essential and tickets priced £13.25 for IBA members and £25.91 for non-IBA members can be purchased at
