I’m a Senior Associate with Gerald Eve, based in the Manchester Office. I work on the Business Rates team and have well over 30 years’ experience in providing rating advice to a broad range of clients in a variety of property sectors.
I worked with the Valuation Office Agency for 30 years, the last 12 of which were spent in the VOA’s Specialist Rating Unit (SRU) dealing with large, complex, high value hereditaments which often had sizeable plant and machinery additions. I moved across to the private sector in 2016 where I continue to provide expert advice to clients in negotiating appeals made against business rate assessments, resulting in substantial savings and rebates in Business rate payments in both the 2010 and 2017 rating lists.
I advise clients on a national and regional basis, including The University of Manchester, C Tec, DHL, Brake Brothers, Bristow Helicopters and Kerry Foods.
