Tax Increment Financing

Colin Ross Associate Director (Assets and Infrastructure)


“Introducing TIF would ensure that London can lead the way out of recession by generating and sharing in the “growth dividend”. TIF is also an important practical response to the localism agenda.” Boris Johnson, Dec. 2009 “The new borrowing powers, known as Tax Increment Financing (TIF), will allow Local Authorities to borrow against predicted growth in their locally raised business rates. They can use that borrowing to fund key infrastructure and other capital projects, which will support locally driven economic development and growth.” Nick Clegg, Sept. 2010
