Business rates for commercial property

Nicholas Percival have acted for some of the largest occupiers of retail, office and industrial commercial property in order to ensure that any business rates applied to their premises are both accurate and appropriate.

As Business rates are a large proportion of a business’s overhead it is critical to ensure they are correct. For over 30 years we have worked both locally within Essex and Nationwide to help businesses mitigate their rate liability.

Business rates are often open to challenge, our expert knowledge and experience will identify any excessive assessments. Once identified we can lodge appeals with the Valuation Office agency with a view to securing a full refund of past over payments and a reduction in rate liability going forward. In addition, we provide strategies to minimise rate liability if your property is empty or partially occupied or adversely affected by factors such as local disturbance, building works or change of circumstances.

Effective management of your business rates can generate significant savings. As Chartered Surveyors who specialise in Commercial Business Services, we can advise you on the best way to reduce your rate liabilities and improve profitability.
