Why work with CVS?

Business rates are a form of tax that have to be paid on most non-domestic properties such as offices, retail shops, hotels, warehouses and factories, to name just a few. If a business uses all or part of a building or premises, they are likely to be liable to pay business rates.

Throughout February and March each year, everyone required to pay business rates will receive a bill from their local council. This bill is for the following tax year.

If you are paying business rates and believe they are unfair, then you may be able to appeal them and potentially achieve a reduction. CVS’ Chartered Surveyors provide trusted expert advice and a professional business rates reduction service which has helped thousands of businesses across the UK.
