Workshop, London


We recently saved our Client, the occupier of a workshop in London, £25,000 in business rates during a programme of reconfiguration. If your property is uninhabitable due to reconfiguration works, it may be possible to reduce your Rateable Value or to have the property temporarily removed from the Rating List altogether. We have had recent success in removing a client’s property from the 2017 Rating List, effectively reducing their business rates liability to £0 during a programme of reconfiguration works.


A workshop was undergoing significant reconfiguration and our Client, the owner-occupier, continued to be liable for business rates despite being unable to occupy the building during the works.


We submitted a detailed check with extensive supporting evidence to the Valuation Office Agency and negotiated on the Client’s behalf.


The outcome was the successful removal of the property from the 2017 Rating List whilst the works were being carried out. This resulted in a business rates rebate and an overall saving of £23,000.
