Do I have a claim?
Many businesses are unaware of their right to challenge the level of their business rates bill or to claim rates relief. Just because the Council demand that you pay your rates doesn’t mean you are paying the correct amount.
Most companies will have a right to appeal and you should investigate the benefits and savings a successful appeal could bring.
There are many opportunities to challenge your business rates. These range from pursuing an appeal to obtain an annual reduction in the level of your Rateable Value to negotiating a temporary discount in your rates bill as a result of disturbance from roadworks or nearby building works.
In addition the Rateable Value for your property can sometimes be reconfigured to allow you to benefit from a number of business rates reliefs. If you have any vacant accommodation there are also ways of paying substantially less.
The first thing is to check whether a challenge would be a good idea. Not everyone can obtain a rates saving and there is no point in going through the process only to come out with nothing at the end.
