RVA Surveyors
The business rates reduction specialists

We offer our services to business rate payers,
whether commercial property owners or tenants,
on a no reduction no fee basis.

How do we reduce your
business rates liabilities?

STEP 1

Government gateway

Once appointed by you, RVA’s Surveying & Audit Department will assist in registering your property and RVA as your agent on the Valuation Office Agency website. This allows RVA’s surveyors to start the process of reviewing your business rates.

STEP 2

On-site surveyor inspection

Our surveyor will visit your property to complete an on-site inspection. Following the inspection the surveyor will then research for relevant comparable evidence to build a case that would support a reduction in your business rates liability. In almost every case, this will entail our surveyor drawing up detailed plans of your property.

STEP 3

Check, challenge, appeal & audit

Where the surveyor has identified a possible reduction in your business rates liability they will lodge a check as part of the Check Challenge Appeal process. In addition to this our audit team will undertake a forensic review of your account with the local authority to identify any further or additional savings to be made.

STEP 4

Successful reduction

RVA has an 85% success rate at Check Challenge Appeal and Audit. We promise to continue the fight, wherever possible to drive down your business rates liabilities.
