I am Head of Business Rates here at Gerald Eve responsible for co-ordinating rating advisory services across the business and leading our 60+ rating surveyors who have saved clients over £3bn since the 2010 rating revaluation.
I am a national council member and chair of the Valuation Faculty Board of the IRRV. I am a member of The Rating Surveyors’ Association and sit on the RICS Rating and Local Taxation Advisory Forum. I also act as APC Counsellor for graduate surveyors within the firm and am an RICS APC Assessor.
I deal with all rating matters for clients and have handled appeals for a wide range of property types for over 25 years with particular emphasis on the manufacturing, distribution and general industrial sectors.
I provide strategic rating advice on many nationwide portfolios covering all aspects of rate management, appeal strategy and other non-appeal related rating matters including advice in respect of strategies to minimise empty rate liabilities
