Discovering your overpayments
Managing business rates can be time-consuming and complex. Checking you’ve been paying the right amount can be even more difficult. How would you know if you’d been overpaying on your property?
While the concept behind business rates are straightforward, they are among the most complicated taxes to administer. Appealing against rateable values is also time consuming. What’s more, rateable values change frequently. This means historic charges for earlier years can also change, requiring reopening of billing.
Sitting outside the conventional rates appeal process, the GN One-Off Business Rates Recovery will help return overpayments to your organisation. You can relax knowing we’re working hard to secure your refund while you focus on your other responsibilities.
How the service can help
It couldn’t be easier to put our GN One-Off Business Rates Recovery service to work. All we usually need from you is your business rate account number or a letter of authority to obtain information from the billing authority or Valuation Office Agency. From there, we will perform undervaluation checks against the property. While uncommon, we will explain any risks of proceeding with the claim, where relevant.
