Business Rates Advocacy

Shaping the future of business rates.

At Gerald Eve, we’re committed to empowering businesses and ratepayers by advocating for equitable and effective policies that foster growth during challenging times. As prominent industry leaders, we actively lobby the government to improve and fine-tune the support measures for ratepayers across various sectors.


Our firm is deeply involved in advocacy and influencing efforts across the rating landscape by collaborating with numerous trade and professional organisations. We advocate for our clients’ interests at the national level and engage with the central government on policy matters to ensure proper representation. Our contribution to the Treasury Select Committee inquiry in 2019 on the “Impact of business rates on business” exemplifies our commitment.


Gerald Eve is widely recognised by key industry, trade, and think tank organisations for our expertise in lobbying across the rating spectrum. Our dedicated team of professionals stays ahead of the game by closely monitoring essential government announcements, legislative changes, and significant case law publications. Our partners sit on the committees and working groups of the key professional bodies – The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), the Institute Of Revenues Rating & Valuation (IRRV) and The Rating Surveyors’ Association (RSA).


We prioritise keeping both ourselves and our clients well-informed and up-to-date, enabling us to adapt our processes as necessary. To achieve this, we provide timely and insightful Business Rates Updates whenever significant developments occur in the rating context.
