With a strong track record of making successful appeals on behalf of occupiers and investors across a variety of UK property types, Cushman & Wakefield’s expertise gives you the best chance to save on business rates.

Based in ten offices around the UK, our rating advisors combine local market knowledge with deep expertise in rating valuation to present the strongest case for reducing assessments. We have a strong record of generating significant savings for our clients.

OPPORTUNITIES TO APPEAL
There are many different opportunities available to reduce Rateable Value assessments and our team will guide you through the appeal process as they vigorously and professionally pursue each challenge. The process is subject to strict time limits and differs according to whether your property is in England, Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland. The appeal process can be a lengthy process, but any savings are backdated.

Where a negotiated and acceptable settlement is not possible, we will present the appeal at Valuation Tribunal, Valuation Appeal Committee, Lands Tribunal or Upper Tribunal (Lands Chamber).
