saved in reduced business rates and rents

1st April 2017.
The countdown has begun.

Days : Hours : Minutes : Seconds

The Valuation Office Agency (VOA) is updating the rateable value of all business properties on 1st April 2017, this process is known as revaluation.

The Government is introducing a new business rates appeals system to coincide with the new Rating List. How your property is valued and how your business rates are calculated remains the same – the key difference is in what happens if you think your business rates bill is inaccurate and want to lodge an appeal.
