Save money on your business rates
Business rates are a considerable overhead for most companies, typically 50% of the annual rent on office or retail space.
70% of properties valued are appealed. A successful appeal will typically result in a saving of between 15% and 30%.
From SMEs to large multi-site blue-chip organisations, our partner specialises in making appeals on all types of commercial property. Our partners will negotiate with the Valuation Office Agency to appeal its business rates on a client’s behalf.
Roughly 36% of businesses do not realise they overpay their business rates.
For most companies, however, understanding business rates is too complex. Because of this, many businesses missed opportunities to reduce their business rates.
A business can take several steps to ensure that it pays the correct business rates and is not overpaying. The majority of information needed is found on the live rating assessment entry for the property, held on the Valuation Office Agency’s website.
