This property tax represents a major overhead for many occupiers and owners, although it’s a cost that so can often be reduced over the Rating Revaluation cycle.
Business rates are based on a hypothetical rental value. We can help you to identify the potential for reducing your rating assessment and overall rates liability; our expertise considers the valuation basis applied by the Valuation Officer, floor areas, internal or external factors (such as building work nuisances), as well as exploring the potential for relief angles.
We apply professional integrity to the rating advisory work we undertake for our clients, allied with a performance-related ethos associated with any formal action.
The 2017 Rating Revaluation period now extends over 5 years, up to 31 March 2022. For more information on the current Revaluation, click on the link below.
