Exciting news for nurseries and playgroups! The Valuation Office Agency (VOA) has recently implemented changes to how they calculate bills, and it's time to take advantage of these new opportunities.
With the VOA now basing their bills on capitation ("head count") rather than just the size of premises, you could be entitled to substantial savings and rebates. But here's the thing—the responsibility for claiming these reductions falls entirely on you, the bill-payer. That's where Commercial Property Advisors (CPA) comes in.
At CPA, we specialize in reducing business rates for clients all across the nation. We offer a free RICS-regulated survey that employs the latest official criteria, ensuring accurate results. And if you decide to proceed, we'll compile a formal challenge to the VOA on your behalf.
What's more, our no win no fee terms are transparent and reasonable, making the entire process worry-free. With CPA by your side, navigating the complexities of business rates becomes a breeze.
Don't miss out on the official new rating methodology for nurseries and playgroups. Contact CPA today for further advice and to take advantage of these exciting possibilities.
