Business Rates Appeals

Every year we pursue thousands of business rates appeals nationwide on behalf of our clients and achieve amazing levels of savings on their behalf.  Whether you have just one property or a large portfolio, we can ensure that your rates bills are kept to the lowest possible level and historic refunds secured wherever possible.

Appeals Settled

Business rates are calculated based on a rental valuation of your property.  This is called your Rateable Value and it is set by the Valuation Office Agency (VOA) who are part of the Inland Revenue.  The VOA are meant to be as accurate as possible in setting Rateable Values but most people are surprised at how often we prove they are wrong.  If we can prove that your Rateable Value is wrong then the savings in your business rates bill can be substantial.

A word of caution however. You should never use an agent who contacts you out of the blue “guaranteeing” you are due a business rates saving. Just because you can challenge your rates bill doesn’t necessarily mean you should. If you receive unsolicited sales calls telling you your rates are too high ignore these types of companies.

At RatesRecovery we will always check your valuation and rates bills before recommending whether you should proceed further with a challenge.  If your rates are fair then we will tell you so at this stage and for free.  We will never challenge your business rates until one of our surveyors has inspected and measured your property.  This professional approach is just one of the many reasons companies choose RatesRecovery as their business rates adviser.
