We have been active in this area for many years and through successive Rating Revaluations going back to the early formation of the Business Rates regime, and as such have a thorough understanding of the issues involved. We offer objective and targeted advice which recognises that every site is different.
We are well versed with varying forms of rating valuation methodologies and in particular analysing build costs for properties valued on the contractors test basis of valuation.
Our experience extends through the full administration and management of our clients rating matters, including making rating returns and checking payments, through to the current ‘Check, Challenge, Appeal’ procedures and ultimately to representation at Valuation and Upper Tribunal (Lands Chamber).
Our Business Rates clients include:
- Quarry operators
- Waste management operators
- Concrete product manufacturers
- Brick and tile manufacturers
- Industrial occupiers
- Renewable energy generators
