The 2010 Rating Revaluation
All commercial property was revalued with effect from 1st April 2010 for business rate purposes under the 2010 Rating List and the Rateable Value assessments are due to last until 31 March 2017, when it is proposed that a further business rate revaluation will be carried out.
Changes to Rateable Values between Rating Lists can arise from alterations being carried out to a property, or changes to a locality, such as a new shopping development or road scheme for example.
With the field of Rating becoming ever more complex we are able to advise Clients as to whether property being occupied is over-assessed, and whether the Rateable Value should be appealed. Additionally, as empty rating liability becomes an increasing burden we can advise upon possible ways of mitigating this tax.
Unlike many companies we are happy to provide initial advice on a ‘no-obligation’basis and also undertake appeals on a ‘no-win, no-fee’ arrangement.
If you believe that your Business Rate liability might be excessive please do not hesitate to contact us for a preliminary discussion.
