Business rates consultancy/ appeals

The business rates liability is a significant property overhead for our clients and we aim to reduce this wherever and whenever possible.

It is not unusual to find that a property's rateable value seems incorrect. We can advise on the next steps and appeal against the rateable value for your property.

Business rates can go up or down on appeal, so it is important to know whether it is worth the risk of appealing the rates before going through the process. Therefore, we carry out a desktop exercise using comparable evidence and report to you with our recommendations before lodging an appeal.

Where appropriate we conduct the challenge with the Valuation Office with the aim to reach a negotiated settlement and we have an excellent track record in reducing our clients' costs.
