Rates Payment Management

The process of administering business rates on multiple site locations, serviced/co-working offices or on investment portfolios involves tracking rate accounts, checking rate bills and ensuring payments are accurate and timely.

Rate payment matters can prove complex, especially in dealing with billing authorities and the Valuation Office Agency.

With billing authorities incentivised to maximise the revenue from this property tax, rates payment management is a key element in keeping this occupied and/or empty rates liability to a minimum.

Our RPMS service can be your outsourced ‘in-house’ support and our HQ the billing address for receiving your rate demands and the associated administration.

Our business rates payment service controls the entire billing process for clients, and incorporates:

  • Rate demand checking
  • Billing period verification
  • Payment management
  • Relief submissions
  • Managing splits & mergers
  • Exploiting saving opportunities
  • Detailed financial reporting
  • Liaising with billing authorities

RPMS – making business rates less taxing
Outsourcing this finance management activity to our dedicated Rates Payment team provides a cost-effective solution – the simplicity of a monthly payment report (or a payment management option via a discrete bank account) along with administrative support, expert knowledge and detailed payment scrutiny.
