Liability Issues

In addition to appealing your rates, we can also check other rate liability issues.

  • Auditing of rate demands to check accuracy
  • Checking transitional relief calculations
  • Looking for historic refunds/credit

You may not be surprised to hear that there are often mistakes made, the legislation controlling the calculations and regulations on the charging of business rates is always changing.

On securing your instruction we will always look at the rate demand to check to see if there are any immediate mathematical or clerical errors. In addition, we will often look at historic issues to try and identify historic errors, such as incorrect start dates, small business rate relief measures, transitional surcharge errors etc.

Do you need assistance with a defence to non-payment? We can listen to your case and provide a defence statement or advise you on what action to take.
