Business Rates Advice

Business rates are a government set property tax used for commercial business purposes. They are charged on pretty much all commercial properties such as Hotels, offices, shops, pubs, warehouses, and many more. The majority of non-domestic (NNDR) properties will have to pay business rates, unless you are entitled to small business rates relief (SBRR). To find out if you are entitled to SBRR or need some free business rates advice please call Mark Allen or Steve Adams.
The amount of business rates you will pay is based on the (RV) or rateable value of your commercial property, which gets set by the Valuation Office Agency (VOA) using in part rental market evidence. The rateable value is then calculated using the multiplier of the pound rate (UBR) to calculate your business rates billing totals. If you require more help in understanding rateable values, simply contact Mark Allen or Steve Adams for some expert business rates advice.
We are experts providing business rates advice UK wide.
There are a number of ways to reduce your business rates liability, including:
Challenging your Rateable Value
If you believe that your property rateable value is too high, you can challenge it via the VOA online portal. The portal allows you to perform VOA tasks online. If you are unable to register online because you do not have a British Passport or UK Driving Licence or for some other reason, we can register on your behalf as your Trusted Helper. Contact us for free business rates advice should you need some assistance from us.
You will need to provide evidence to support your challenge case, such as rental market evidence or comparable properties with lower rateable values that are nearby to your business property. Business Rate Advisors can provide you with a free property review to see if you qualify for our expert business rate service. Contact our business rate advisors Mark Allen or Steve Adams to find out more about challenging your business rates.
Claiming relief or exemption
What business rates will you pay? There are a number of business rate reliefs and business rate exemptions available that can reduce your business rates liability. Some of the most common reliefs include:

Empty property relief: This relief is available to businesses that have an empty property.

Paying in instalments
