Our rating advisory work involves due diligence and us establishing a detailed understanding of a client’s property interests – for each instruction, we establish the rateable areas, age, specification and way the space is utilised.
We also analyse the rental evidence, prior to making our recommendations and commencing with formal any action or relief application, where appropriate.
Check, Challenge, Appeal (CCA)
A new CCA process for England was introduced in April 2017 and adds greater complexity to that of the previous appeals system.
In addition, ratepayers must now register on the VOA Gateway portal and appoint their professional representative on this system, before any formal action can begin.
As ever, due diligence is a crucial element of any rates mitigation game-plan.
