What are Business Rates?

Each commercial property is set a rateable value by the valuation office and the rates you pay are directly linked to your rateable value. The rateable value of your property represents the figure that the Valuation Office would expect your property to let for on the open market at a given date.

Why appeal?

The current rating assessments came into force on 1st April 2010 and is based on property values at the peak of the market in April 2008. The current assessments will continue to be used to calculate rates bills for a further two years following the postponement of the 2015 revaluation by the Government. It is therefore more important than ever to ensure that your rateable value is a low as possible.

Why use James Berlin & Associates

As specialists in rating we are familiar with all Rating Legislation and Case Law. We have the resources to compile all the necessary evidence needed to propose a revaluation to the valuation office.

It may also be necessary to inspect your premises. The Valuation Office hold floor areas on every non domestic property but these areas are often wrong resulting in huge over payments.  When we measure your property we do so in accordance with the RICS Code of Measuring Practice to ensure you are paying as little as possible.

Throughout the current assessment we have been agreeing large reductions meaning great savings for our clients. We are extremely confident we can do the same for you.
