Business Rates

Your business should not be penalised by having to pay unnecessary business rates. An assessment of the property and your circumstances will quickly enable us to establish whether there are grounds upon which to challenge the Rateable Value or if you are eligible for any of the relief schemes.


The Rateable Value of your premises forms the basis for the calculation of the business rates that you pay. It is re-assessed every five years. If alterations are made to a property, a reassessment will be made. This may give rise to grounds for an appeal against the new Rateable Value.


If there are other changes such as a change of use of a neighbouring property, there may be grounds for an application to reduce the Rateable Value.
