Reliefs and Exemptions

If you have an empty property, or are moving into or out of one, you may be entitled to a business rates relief or exemption that could deliver significant cost savings.

At Cushman & Wakefield we help create the best tailored strategy to minimise business rates liability for our clients.

The Government allows business rates liability to be lawfully mitigated in certain cases through a complex network of exemptions, reliefs and allowances. Rules and procedures differ between England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland: for instance, you may be entitled to greater exemptions if planning an extension to a property in Scotland compared to the rest of the UK.

With advisors located in ten offices throughout the United Kingdom, Cushman & Wakefield’s Business Rates team guides our clients through the specialised legal framework of rates reliefs and exemptions. Our rating team help identify the types of relief and exemptions you may be entitled to, bringing extensive expertise as well as strong relationships with local billing authorities and valuation officers/assessors.

Whatever the location, type and size of your property portfolio or single asset, we will create a tailored strategy for you to minimise rates liability and enable long-term cost savings.
