Get our help stopping enforcement agents for business rates.

Bailiffs are being used more frequently in the collection of business rates especially now with councils declaring bankruptcy. Around half of our enquiries are regarding court summons or an enforcement agent visit. Most business owners who owe business rates are looking for an affordable payment arrangement but are unable to get one when speaking with council instructed bailiffs. The bailiffs usually want the full amount so its almost a pointless exercise trying to speak with them. This is what those bailiffs are taught to do. Yet if you pressure the council, often you can get them to instruct the bailiff company to accept the arrangement.

If you need help with a council business rate debt and need us to resolve the problem for you, get in touch with Mark or Steve who will give you initial advice on what you need to do.
