Did you know that central government, when setting the business rates 'multiplier'(which determines the amount of rates payable by your business), takes full account of the cost of appeals?
Thus, non-domestic rates remain stubbronly high , not just because they are inflation-linked, but also to finance rebates and revaluations.
With this in mind, you may well be feeling that you should be challenging your rates bill, rather than effectively subsidising the amounts won by other businesses which have launched effective appeals?
With Commercial Property Advisors (CPA) offering a free consultation . as well as undertaking free of charge the complex paperwork involved in appeals ( benefiting from the services of RICS-accredited surveyors), you have absolutely nothing to lose by claiming financial relief which is built into the rating system!
