How do we reduce your
business rates liabilities?
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.
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.
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.
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.
Speak to a savings specialist
Our surveyors will complete an onsite inspection of every property to find any discrepancies in the information held by the Valuation Office Agency about the internal and external uses of the property .The surveyors will then produce an up to date and precise plan, while undertaking research to find relevant comparable evidence that would support a case to reduce the liability for the property through the Check, Challenge, Appeal process.
Offices & Premises
It is not uncommon to find offices
and premises to be overpaying vast sums based on extremely out-dated or incorrect information held by the valuation office.
Retail, Leisure & Showroom
All too often
there are huge inconsistencies within the
properties valuation which can lead to vast sums being overpaid.
Industrial & Plant
