The Commercial Property Network has 18 member firms dedicated to delivering expert advice on business rates through the exchange of information, sharing of local expertise and depth of varied experiences.

All ratepayers should determine whether or not they are paying the correct amount of rates for their business and consider how to minimise their costs.

Our expertise covers:

  • All types of appeals
  • All aspects of the appeal process (Check, Challenge, Appeal)
  • Preparing and presenting evidence at valuation and upper tribunals
  • Reliefs, exemptions and discounts
  • Empty property rate mitigation
  • Advice on developments, Completion Notices and refurbishment of vacant space

Our close, cross-discipline network allows for the smooth flow of rental and cost information, meaning that we are able to advise regardless of location and property type. Examples include:

  • Offices, shops and shopping centres, warehouses and factories
  • Car parks, petrol stations, hotels and public houses
  • Hospitals and day care centres, museums, fire stations and airports
  • Council Tax advice and appeals e.g. HMO aggregation

Minimising exposure to business rates is vital to the efficient running of any business occupying property in the UK. The Commercial Property Network can assist will all enquiries in relation to rating advice.
