Calls for overhaul of rates system

A South Kerry business man has called for an overhaul of the rates system. Dermot O’ Carroll of the Glencar House Hotel wants the level of rates paid to be dependant on a business’s gross income. He also says that in his 42 years of living abroad he has never seen a country where rates weren`t applied on residential homes. Mr O`Carroll would like for the burden to be spread evenly across all businesses.
