Business Rates

In a highly specialised area, we can provide the expert advice necessary to improve your cash flow by minimising current and future rate liability, and by ensuring a correct assessment.

Minimising liability to improve cash flow

Dealing with business rates calls for a high level of experience and expertise as there are limited opportunities to make successful challenges to the Valuation Office. This means that each case needs to be handled by a qualified professional advisor.

In April 2010 a revaluation of all properties came into effect, resulting in significant increases in liability across most geographic areas and sectors. The next revaluation is due to take place in 2017.
