Business Rates Reviews and Appeals

Act now.

The 2023 Rating assessments, shaped by significant events including Brexit, the pandemic, and the economic crises, arrived with potential inaccuracies in Rateable Values (RVs). Amid these uncertainties, many businesses may be eligible to reduce their rates liabilities. Is yours one of them?

 

With a unique insight into valuation, an in-depth understanding of the appeals system, and constructive relationships with billing authorities, nobody is better placed to review and appeal your business rates liability. We navigate the intricacies of the business rates process for you, taking the burden and uncertainty away to ensure you pay the right amount. And when given a single opportunity for an appeal, presenting a compelling case is of utmost importance.

 

Commitment to transparency

We strive to keep our process as transparent as possible. You’ll be informed at every step, understanding what’s happening and why. We believe that clarity and communication are key.

  • Consultation

    We begin by understanding your business, its unique needs, and objectives. This helps us to deliver a strategy and service tailored to your needs.

  • Review

    We review your entire portfolio to identify where there may be opportunities to challenge assessments and to understand where assessments may be too low (under-assessed) and accrue accordingly.

  • Reliefs, Reductions and Exemptions

    We identify opportunities for reduction or deletions for property undergoing demolition, redevelopment or refurbishment.

     

    We advise on strategies for any vacant but occupiable property.

     

    We can apply for all applicable reliefs.

  • Appeal

    If we identify areas where you may have been overcharged, we handle the appeal process on your behalf, advocating for your best interests.

     

    Once a decision has been reached, we’ll communicate the outcome to you clearly and discuss any potential next steps.
