Business Rates Appeals

WT Gunson’s rating professionals are expert in appealing and reducing rateable values to help our clients save on business rates payable. Business rates are a significant overhead for any business, so it makes good sense to minimise liability.

Business rates appeals are a complex area of valuation and for the best result an appeal should be handled by a Chartered Surveyor with the relevant rating expertise. Our rating team has exceeded expectations in recent years by achieving significant savings for clients in over 90% of the rates appeals submitted.

Our keys skills and services in this area include:

  • Reviewing rateable values and submitting appeals
  • Achieving substantial reductions in rateable value (thus significant savings in rates payable)
  • Providing representation at valuation tribunal hearings
  • Securing rates reductions due to material change of circumstances
