An inevitable part of renting a business premises is the need to pay business rates. However an increase in these can be the death knell for some sole traders and limited companies.
Business rates are based on the rateable value of non-domestic properties, and are revaluated typically every five years. The latest revaluation has seen rises for many businesses, and this has led to more and more business owners wishing to challenge their rates liability.
Our Chartered Rating Surveyors have vast experience of challenging business rates across all industries and sectors. We can assess your new valuation, and if we feel it may be incorrect and therefore worth challenging, we can lodge an appeal for you.
Our success rate in business rates appeals is, in part, down to the time we invest from the outset by providing a thorough assessment of your business and property.
