Property Occupier Business Rates
Can your business rates be reduced?
Lease event soon? It could impact your business rates!
If you have a rent review, lease renewal or re-gear in the next twelve months, what is agreed could have a significant impact on your business rates assessment for the 2026 Rating List.
We are already working hard, advising clients in preparation for the 2026 Rating List.
If you are undertaking, or affected by building works or think you are paying too much in business rates, please get in touch.
How to appeal
The earlier you can seek advice, the better. Although appeals and relief claims can be backdated, advice secured early on will ensure the best possible outcome.
We will fact-check it, assess whether or not savings can be made and if so, advise you on the best course of action.
How we can help you
Business rates are a commercial property tax, payable by property owners and occupiers. The amount payable will depend on the “rateable value” of the property, which is broadly based on the hypothetical annual market rent value. It is payable whether the property is occupied, empty, or undergoing redevelopment.
WHAT WE DO
- If your property is overvalued we can appeal the Rateable Value to reduce it to the correct level
- If your property is affected by nearby building works we can appeal the Rateable Value to secure an allowance to reflect the disturbance
- We only charge a fee if an appeal is successful
- Allsop have a successful track record of securing rateable value reductions and achieve substantial savings for businesses
- We are retained by many household names
- All appeals are handled by Chartered Surveyors who specialise in their particular fields
