Vacant Property Rates Relief

You can apply for empty property relief if your commercial property is unoccupied and unfurnished. We can advise you on whether you are eligible for this relief and how much relief you may be due. We can then help you make your claim.

Water & Sewerage Charges

We can give you expert advice on the charges that you should be paying for the water and sewerage services delivered to your commercial property. If we think that the charges that you are currently paying are not correct, or think that there are any ways in which you could reduce your expenses in this area, we can negotiate on your behalf.

Business Rates Budgeting

It is important to plan ahead and be in a position to prepare for your future business rates liabilities. Our specialist team has the knowledge and expertise to make informed forecasts to help you budget accordingly.

New Property Advice

Thanks to our in-depth knowledge of business tax law, we can provide consultancy advice on all aspects of commercial property rating for new property. We can provide this advice before or after you have made a purchase. We can offer it as a stand-alone service or as part of a full property acquisition service package.
