Operating as Business Rates Surveyors in Brighton & Hove, we are dedicated to providing our services to address your specific business rates requirements. Occupants of commercial properties and owners of vacant premises frequently encounter significant financial challenges associated with business rates. The intricacies of the 2017 Rating List, relevant legislation, and the complex 'Check, Challenge & Appeal' system can be overwhelming to navigate. It is crucial for ratepayers to acknowledge that uninformed challenges to their rating assessments may unintentionally lead to unanticipated increases instead of the desired reductions.

How we can help you

Our extensive range of services encompasses all aspects of business rates, aiming to minimise your financial obligations. Through close collaboration with you, we conduct a meticulous assessment of your current situation and devise a strategic plan that not only reduces your future liability but also recovers any excessive business rates you may have paid. Our approach involves skillful negotiation with the Valuation Office Agency and seamless communication with the local billing authority. Additionally, we proactively manage your property portfolio, ensuring you take full advantage of all applicable rates reliefs. Our primary objective is to maximise your savings and optimize your overall financial outcomes.
