Business Rates Appeals

Business Rates can be one of the largest outgoings your business has. Our business rates appeal process can help you to reduce this expense and improve your bottom line.  Let us help you on a no-win, no-fee basis.

All properties in England, Wales and Scotland are to be revalued from 1st April 2017 when new rateable values used to calculate business rates liabilities will come into force. There will be the right to challenge these rateable values with effect from 1st April 2017. A new system of challenge is to be introduced known as ‘Check, Challenge, Appeal’. The full details of the process are still to be determined by the government and it is more important than ever to seek advice from professional rating advisors to help you through the process.

The 2017 revaluation may seem like a long time away but draft rateable values are to be published at the end of September when there will the opportunity to consider the valuation applied to your property.

CNG Business Services has partnered with Lambert Smith Hampton a renowned national property consultancy to bring you a business rates appeal service on a no win no fee basis. LSH offers innovative solutions and a progressive approach aimed at maximising the value of every property decision.

CNG has a simple price structure for this service. If LSH reduces your business rates liability they will charge 20% of the reduction in rate liability secured over the period of the 2017 rating list plus VAT. There are no upfront or survey fees and the consultation is also free.
