RVA Surveyors wins Business Rates Reduction Specialists of the Year

Molly Jackson-Holm | 16th August 2023

RVA Surveyors have won the annual IE100 Award for 2023 Business Rates Reduction Specialists (UK) from International Elite (IE).

Business rates is a tax on commercial properties, the commercial equivalent of council tax. The Valuation Office Agency (VOA) sets the rateable value (RV) for each commercial property at each new revaluation, which in turn determines the amount of business rates liability. However, if just one area of a commercial property is incorrectly assessed, then the liability for that property could be exponentially more than it should be.

Earlier this year, RVA Surveyors received a third-party nomination based on the merits and achievements of their service.

The IE100 Awards were established to honour the achievements of ability, across all areas of business. An annual event, IE host and judge nominations before informing the winners. All winners will be listed in their Autumn/Winter magazine edition.

“It was incredible to find out that we had won this award based on the support provided to our clients.” Anthony Hughes, Managing Director at RVA Surveyors said.

“For the business community to recognise and acknowledge the work our team has delivered, and are continuing to deliver, is fantastic.”

The new rating list began in April 2023, with a host of interim support packages and short-term extensions to reliefs. A large portion of which was dedicated to helping business owners and leaders with their business rates. RVA have continued to evolve to meet the varying demands that have arisen from this in their services.

Owned and run by the Hughes family for nearly twelve years, RVA Surveyors focus on delivering excellent service to their clients. With an 85% success rate at the Check Challenge Appeal, and Audit process, they have saved over £350 million for clients so far. RVA Surveyors are committed to securing significant reductions in business rates liabilities throughout England and Wales for companies of all sizes.

It is the latest addition to the series of awards that RVA Surveyors have won over the past twelve months. The company has previously been recognised for its continuing hard work in the fields of learning and development, business consultancy, business growth, and family business.
