The draft figures for the 2017 business rates revaluation were released September 30 2016.
Our Chartered Rating Surveyors can assess your new valuation immediately and if an appeal is appropriate we can pursue it for you on a no-win no-fee basis.
A Business Rates Audit from Eddisons gives you so much more than merely checking the accuracy of your rates bills.
Unlike many rating surveyors, we perform a complete historical forensic analysis of your company’s business rates liability. This usually involves examining not just the bills themselves, but also every other aspect of your property and the surrounding area that affects how much you should have been paying in previous and current years.
The service is not associated in any way with conventional rating appeals so, if your business is dealing with its rates appeal already through another rating agent, we can complement this work by providing you with a business rates health check. The process is simple and non-intrusive inasmuch as there are no site visits required, no lengthy appeals procedures and no paperwork for you to have to locate from your archives. You simply give us the instruction to act for you and we will do the rest.
Once any historical errors have been identified by Eddisons’ Rating Audit specialists, we calculate the potential overpayment and challenge the authorities in order to recover these sums quickly and effectively, usually within 2 months of the start of the process. Only once you have received any savings as a result of the Audit do we charge fees based on a percentage of the saving. In the event that there is no saving, then no fees are payable under any circumstances. You simply go away with the peace of mind that your bills are correct.
We can undertake this work on single properties or indeed whole portfolios, as required.
Please give our Rating Team a call on 0333 6000 110 to set up an appointment to discuss your requirements.
