Check Case Appeal

In July 2020, our client was sent a back dated bill (effective 1st April 2017) for payment of Business Rates totalling £58,030 for a piece of land they owned that was not previously assessed for rates. The land was initially assessed with a Rateable Value of £30,000.

On 5th December 2020 they instructed Verity to deal with the appeal and on 5th February 2021, we agreed a reduction in the assessment with the valuation officer to an updated Rateable Value of £7,100.

The client was then able to claim 100% Small Business Rate Relief and the debt was cleared meaning they owed nothing.

Total Saving: £58,030

Now with more premises becoming vacant than ever before, the service provided by Verity has become essential. With a couple of emails they take over the account and another headache is taken care of. They are efficient and respond to queries immediately. I would highly recommend to any Landlord who has vacant commercial property.
