Business Rates on Vacant Commercial Buildings - Avoid, Defer, Minimise and Manage.
Business Rating consultancy is a specialist area within surveying. Dealing with business rates on ‘empty’ buildings, including newly constructed/refurbished space, is a specialist area of the profession. Pentland is able to provide professional advice and guidance on this subject.
Mark Baxendale, Senior Estates Surveyor will be more than happy to meet with you to discuss the review of any current or anticipated empty rate situation on an initial 'no obligation' basis in order to establish where the potential exists to initially avoid and defer, and then ultimately minimise business rates liability should it occur.
The 'manage' aspect is particularly relevant from 1 April 2008, as it relates to owners needing to administer, check and make payments on rate demands received on void space. In this regard, we also provide a comprehensive Rate Payment Management service, which ensures that the overall rate liability is controlled and overseen by a dedicated rate account manager.
