Victoria is an Associate and heads up the Audit, Insolvency and Rate Management arm of the Business Rates Team, specialising in rates payment and recovery of a number of large portfolios and rate audits, which has recovered many millions of pounds of “lost” monies.
Victoria’s career started with Westminster City Council some 20 years ago and she joined Allsop in 2012. Her Local Government background has left her well placed as the go-to advisor in all things rate liability; her up to the minute knowledge of case law and amendments to regulations enable our clients to stay one step ahead, thus minimising exposure to liability wherever possible. Her skills and experience include court defence, negotiation, listed building exemptions, part occupied relief, investment trust, mitigation strategy and recovering over £4 million for the Administrators of a failed retailer.
Victoria is a member of the Institute of Revenues, Rating and Valuation.
