Gerald Eve Leaders in Business Rates

Rates Payment Management Services

Gerald Eve are the UK’s largest outsourced ratepayer. Our property tax management service handles over £1 billion of bills each year, on behalf of more than 25,000 properties. Outsource your property tax payments to us and receive exceptional governance for your payment and audit process.

We have introduced this specialist management service to ensure that all your business rate requirements can be met and protected from a single source. On average, our property tax management service saves finance teams 100 working days each year.

We have also recovered over £60 million in refunds for clients in just three years; millions of pounds more have been saved by correcting tax bill errors. Our business rates management service encompasses the entire payment process, including: bill auditing, managing payments and proactively recovering funds.
Rather than continue juggling the responsibility of making monthly payments to hundreds of local authorities with other demands, remittances, budgeting reports and property portfolio admin, simply make one monthly lump sum transfer to us and we’ll do the rest.

Our rates payment management service puts clients in control, they can be confident that they never pay more than they are legally obliged to.

The 2017 ratings revaluation is now in force and the rating system threatens to become increasingly complicated. Over the last few years, we’ve taken over from fiance teams who allowed local authorities to collect payments directly from their accounts, leaving them with very little control over the quantity and timing of these payments. Gerald Eve managed Bacs payments on a just-in-time basis, ensuring total control over the payment process.

Using our outsource service means that your company can also benefit from flexible, comprehensive financial reports. We provide reports on a property-by-property accounts and forecasts using bespoke, cutting edge rating software.
