Based in Eastbourne, we are dedicated Business Rates Surveyors determined to meet your unique business rates requirements. We acknowledge the significant financial challenges faced by occupants of commercial properties and owners of vacant premises in relation to business rates. Navigating the complexities of the 2017 Rating List, relevant legislation, and the intricate 'Check, Challenge & Appeal' system can be overwhelming. It is vital for ratepayers to understand that ill-informed challenges to their rating assessments can unintentionally lead to unexpected increases instead of the desired reductions. Our mission is to provide you with comprehensive support and guide you through the process to achieve optimal outcomes.

How we can help you

We offer a comprehensive range of services that cover every facet of business rates, with the goal of minimising your financial commitments. Through a collaborative approach, we conduct a thorough assessment of your current circumstances and develop a strategic plan aimed at reducing your future liability and reclaiming any overpaid business rates. Our approach involves adept negotiation with the Valuation Office Agency and seamless communication with the local billing authority. Furthermore, we take proactive measures to efficiently manage your property portfolio, ensuring you leverage all available rates reliefs. Our primary objective is to maximize your savings and optimize your overall financial outcomes.
