Business Rates

We have a decade of experience in non-domestic rating and could help you reduce your business rate liability.

Business rates are a local tax, paid by occupiers of all non-domestic/business property. Rateable Values are assessed by the Valuation Office Agency (VOA) in England and Wales and the Scottish Assessors Association (SAA) in Scotland. 

Due to the large number of properties across the UK and the fast-paced, ever-changing nature of the property market; rateable values are not always correctly assessed. This is why the VOA and SAA have an appeal process in place for ratepayers to check, challenge and appeal assessments. 

Christie & Co can advise on how to appropriately challenge and mitigate your business rates liability; achieving the best possible result for you.  We always conduct a comprehensive and in-depth due diligence checking process prior to submitting any appeal, meaning you can be sure that when we make an appeal on your behalf – we are confident about the outcome.

The 2017 List has seen the introduction of new rateable values for business occupiers which present a fantastic opportunity to challenge the new figures that have not been assessed since the previous revaluation in 2010.

Should you wish to discuss your rating assessment and find out of how Christie & Co could help reduce your business rates liability, please contact us at
