Anyone from local business owners to well-known brands could unknowingly be due the return of significant business rates overpayments, and our team of rating experts have their sights set on helping you seize every opportunity. Over decades we have fine-tuned a tool-kit of rating and valuation knowledge and skills – the same skills that, over the course of a three year period, saw us recover considerable sums for itsu.
itsu is a provider of healthy and delicious Asian-inspired dishes, in your own kitchen as well as in restaurants across the UK – including an exciting venue only a short walk from our friendly, Bristol-based sales team. As a growing business, it is important that they don’t miss out on opportunities to recover unnecessary costs.
Our work allowed them to do just that.
We first approached them with news of a valuation issue at one of their London restaurants. Armed with a vast understanding of rating regulations and property specs (within itsu’s premises and across the local area) our auditors cooked up a more accurate assessment of the property, which they then presented to the Valuation Office. This led to an impressive refund of backdated, overpaid business rates.
Goodman Nash have proven themselves to be specialist rating advisors, identifying and most importantly delivering real cash benefits to our business through detailed rate payment audits, and a deep knowledge of the rating system.
Further success was found across London and Leeds, when we identified historic billing errors in a number of restaurants worth a small fortune – dating back to when our client first opened their doors. The nature of the error meant that we were restricted for time; a day too late and the opportunity to recover overpayments would have been lost. Thanks to the dedication of our auditors and the time our support team spent liaising with the council, we were able to recoup every penny due back.
All in all, we were able to deliver more than £200,000 in savings, and a job well-done. There is no limit to who Goodman Nash can assist!
