Hellier Langston will ensure that your rates liability will be fully scrutinised, assessments appealed and your costs minimised.
The calculation of your Rateable Value by the Valuation Office Agency can often be perceived as a dark art, but in reality, the 2023 Revaluation figures should be based on evidence of rental values as at 1 April 2021. Hellier Langston are ideally placed to challenge the Valuation Office Agency’s broad brush approach to this Revaluation.
The revaluation has also heralded a significantly different appeal system: CHECK, CHALLENGE and APPEAL and this places more responsibility on the ratepayer (or their agent) to provide detailed information about their property, meaning seeking professional assistance is more important than ever.
Our available service includes:
- Undertaking appeals and negotiations with the Valuation Office Agency
- Presentation of cases at Valuation and Land Tribunals
- Calculation of rates liabilities
- Rates phasing
- Advice for empty buildings (empty rates)
As ratings professionals, the team offers a flexible, performance related fee structure for Business Rates Appeals.
