Business rates are one of the most contentious cost issues in running a business today. Appeals under the 2010 Rating List are more difficult to negotiate and the skills required to value for rating go way beyond analysis of floor areas. Rating is a highly technical discipline and our rating experience is available for appeals based on many grounds. As a professionally qualified RICS registered firm we fully handle the dispute, presenting a full and detailed case to ensure a maximum chance of successful appeal. Ask us about our services for removing properties from rating, age related claims and advice on new or redeveloped sites.
