Business rates

Our rating team leads the market in advising clients on opportunities to mitigate business rate liabilities.

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, the team looks to make an impact resulting in bottom-line savings for clients.

Our 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/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.
