A much-needed break for holiday home owners

There are savings to be unearthed for businesses both large and small; from nationwide corporations to sole traders, Goodman Nash are dedicated to finding buried treasure for clients across the UK. One such business is located much closer to home – a former holiday let not far from Bristol, where our own sales team (a client’s first point of contact) are based.

When still trading as a commercial let for holidaymakers seeking an escape to the countryside, East Barn was a cosy barn conversion surrounded by trees and ancient farmland. It closed its doors in 2021 and was subsequently removed from the rating list.

Some might consider the matter of business rates done and dusted, however, Goodman Nash has to hand an unmatched bank of rating and valuation data which we regularly review to ensure no billing errors or valuation discrepancies are missed. In late 2022, long after East Barn ceased trading, our auditors identified a billing error – one which amounted to thousands in overpayments. These savings would have been lost had Goodman Nash not intervened.

Despite my initial scepticism, I decided to try this – and in a very easy and well explained process recovered 5 years worth of overpaid business rates. Thank you Cornelia Cole and team!

Although when we first approached the client, it sounded like it might be too good to be true, our friendly sales representative was able to offer expert advice and set their mind at ease. This allowed us to investigate the property further, and deliver a rebate of several thousand pounds dating back a number of years.

There are a currently untapped number of similar savings buried in an ever-changing rating list. It is the job of Goodman Nash to bring these opportunities to light.
