    Appeal Business Rates offer expert, cost effective, business rates evaluation and savings for every UK business.We help you to successfully appeal against your new Rateable Value [RV]. By calculating your Uniform Business Rates [UBR] liability each year, we will make you noticeable savings. We charge as little as 99.00 to do a full eligibility check.

    Rateable Values are often too high, so we examine whether or not they represent a fair value. If not, we appeal against it and lead all negotiations with the Valuation Office.

    We check rates demand, transitional relief calculations, effective dates and refund totals. We also provide comprehensive savings reports and budgetary advice. We ensure that we are providing accurate and up-to date liabilities to our clients.


    From April 2008, empty property allowances were effectively abolished, and vacant properties are expected to pay business rates at the full occupied rate. We advise our clients how to mitigate their empty rates liability by using various methods.

    We cover all of the UK, saving business rate returns in every sector of every market. We offer a rates assessment and bill checking service. So why wait? Send your latest bill to us today and see how much we could save you.

    Option available on all audit claims, we check your councils historic billing information.

    Are your business rates costing more than your rent, have your business rates been checked recently. Business rates are the second most expensive cost you pay as a business, did you know the rates you pay are based on information gathered from 2015, and they are often estimated on previous rent information.

    If your property has not challenged your current evaluation you could be entitled to a three year back dated refund, plus save money moving forward. Here at Appeal Business Rates we can not only save you money, but make sure you have the correct evaluation for your business rates. We can check your rates and see if you are due a refund.

    “Very impressed with the way Lindsey persisted in pushing the appeal in spite of getting knocked back at the first attempt. I would certainly recommend your company to anyone with a problem with overcharged Business Rates.

    Very Helpful Company. I spoke to a very helpful guy, Darren, who carefully looked at my situation and put my mind at rest over a possible rates increase. Despite spending his valuable time on the phoine and emailing me, he insisted that there was no charge. Many thanks John

    Honest and upfront advice. Like a lot of people have found owning commercial property which I cant find tennants for a real financial millstone. Spoke to Darren and explained my circumstance. Instead of trying to make money out of me he gave me some valuable free advice. He honestly explained that fees to work on my behalf werent going to be cost effective for me but he then went on to be very generous with his time and advice. Can only think what an honest and upfront guy, would definately have used them if it had been appropriate.

    Excellent company giving excellent service. There are not many companies that are as honest and reliable as this company. They came to inspect my retail property and decided that an appeal would not be worthwhile. Other companies wanted to charge us a fee and make a claim regardless, but they were completely honest and said it would not be worthwhile. Very refreshing to receive such good advice. Many thanks

    I spoke to Darren about how to reduce or remove Business Rates from a failed business from 5 years ago that I have just been billed £10,000 for. I am on disability benefits and cannot possibly afford that. The advisor took the time to give me so many helpful pointers and talked me through achievable steps I could do myself without charge. I am blown away that someone would do that for me in his own time. Can't recommend enough

    After spending some considerable time and effort navigating the deliberately confusing Valuation Office Agency appeals system and in between various correspondence with Woking Borough Council. I finally succumbed to the high probability of getting no where fast and called the experts. I was highly fortunate to choose to call Darren at Appeal Business Rates who very kindly explained the best course of action for free. When you're in a difficult situation it can sometimes feel like by getting anyone else involved you maybe adding to your problems. Darren and the team at Appeal Business Rates are Exceptional in genuinely wanting to help.

    Brilliant company who do what they say! After getting robbed by another fraudulent company Darren and Lyndsey at Overrated took over and managed to get my business rates down. Carried on being there to support me afterwards too. My advice is never use anyone else as these guys are by far the best out there.

    Lyndsey was extremely quick to get in touch with us and provided a first class advise that saved our company in the region of £6000 per annum as well as enabling us to obtain a refund for overpaid rates. I would definitely recommend using this company!
