Helen Dickinson, CEO of the British Retail Consortium, is quite right to associate high business rates with the closure of nearly 20,000 stores since 2015.
However, Commercial Property Advisors (CPA) believes that impassioned pleas to the Chancellor are unlikely to produce rates relief in the near future, if only because government relies on rates revenue as a convenient cash cow.
What to do , in the meantime?
CPA offers all retail and hospitality enterprises the opportunity to have their rates bill professionally re-assessed, on a worry-free, no win no fee basis.
CPA has a rapidly growing track record of success in saving firms thousands, a rare pleasant surprise to which many thought they were not entitled.
CPA will handle all paperwork, including surveys, and will keep clients apprised of developments as the appeals progress.
