Rates Appeals

 As the Rateable Values are often too high we will examine whether or not your Rateable Value represents fair value. 

If not we can appeal against the level of your Rateable Value and lead all negotiations with the Valuation office. 

We have experience in presenting cases on behalf of our clients in Valuation Tribunal if resolution cannot be found through normal discussions.

Part Occupied Premises

We advise and provide savings for commercial premises that are not fully and only part occupied due to downsizing, seasonal and economic reductions in trade. 

This involves the application and completion of certificates to the relevant local authority. 

 

Empty Rates Advice

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 utilising various methods. 

These include – deletion of the property entirely from the Rating List on the grounds of either disrepair, obsolesence and refurbishment work – temporary or intermittent occupation plus occupations by charity or prevented by law. 

Rates Bill Audits

For our clients’ we check rates demand, transitional relief calculations, effective dates and refund totals. 

Plus we also provide comprehensive savings reports and budgetary advice. 

We use Riverlake and Analyse rates software to ensure that we are providing accurate and up-to date liabilities to our clients’. 

Completion Notices

 We will examine and in some cases appeal against the commencement of rates assessments.
