Helping you make sense of business rates

Goodman Nash continues to pioneer groundbreaking opportunities to reduce clients’ liability to business rates.

A business rates audit can recover savings through two main avenues: valuation corrections and billing corrections. It is critical for both to be considered to ensure your business rates liabilities are accurate and minimised. We work on a no win, no fee basis. If your case is successful, we charge a percentage of the total rates savings we win back on your behalf.

Our experts simplify the process. We advise on the best course of action – be it valuation based, billing corrections or a combination of both – and recover overpayments, giving you confidence that you’re not paying more than you should, both now and for the future.

Valuation: is your rateable value correct?

Your property’s rateable value is set by the Valuation Office Agency (VOA) who are responsible for valuing all commercial properties in England and Wales for business rates; for Scottish properties it is the Scottish Assessors Association (SAA). However, valuations are not always accurate and can be challenged with the right knowledge and expertise – experience that Goodman Nash has developed over many decades.

Don’t delay – different valuation methods, as well as time limits and restrictions on challenging valuations, mean the earlier you seek advice, the better your prospects of seeing a business rates reduction.

Billing: are you paying the right amount?

Business rates bills are calculated and issued by your local council, but the calculations are notoriously complex. There are many complicated rulesets for reliefs, exemptions and how to apply them. The criteria can also vary depending on location, in some instances even between councils. Goodman Nash is uniquely qualified to navigate the maze of reliefs and exemptions and identify where your charges could be corrected, saving you money.
