Business rates

Our clients benefit from our intimate market knowledge and access to extensive transactional evidence - the key to securing business rate reductions.

Whether it is challenging rating assessments, identifying opportunities where legislation has been applied incorrectly or achieving savings by applying to local authorities for relief on empty premises, our team looks to make an impact resulting in bottom-line savings for clients.

Our rating services include:

• appeals to reduce the general basis of assessment 
• appearances at valuation tribunals
• advice on the implications of transitional relief 
• maximisation of empty/other temporary reliefs and the removal of properties from the Rating List on account of refurbishment or redevelopment

To find out how we can help you with any business rates related issues please don't hesitate to get in touch with Marcus Dorfman.
