Business rates are a major outgoing for all occupiers of commercial property – and Vickery Holman has been working with businesses for over 30 years to help you manage and reduce your business rates.

Understanding Business Rates is complex. We have specialists who can work with you to make sure that you are not overpaying Business Rates. We have helped a number of businesses in 2019 check their Rateable Value (RV) and appeal against incorrect RVs, rewarding those businesses in some cases going back to 2015, as well as a reduction in Business Rates going forwards. This amounts to many thousands of pounds and can significantly reduce your operating costs.

Recent successes include:

New build car showroom incorrectly measured by VOA – £190,000 saving.

“Reset the clock” on vacant property – £7,500 saving in 3 months.

Negotiated reduction in rates during construction works – £35,000 saving over 6 months.

“We were delighted with the work done by Vickery Holman regarding a mistake on our business rates rating. Would highly recommend them!”

– Mr David Pooley, Secondhand World


“Vickery Holman acted for us in the re-merging of several rooms and car parking spaces in our Newton Abbot office. After inspection of our property, they highlighted a number of actions that could be taken to reduce our rates. They then submitted the required forms and dealt with the Valuation Office Agency throughout.

Vickery Holman achieved a saving for us of over £5,000 between 2017 and 2019, with a reduced rates bill to come in 2020. We have also got back our small business rates relief entitlement.”

– Charles Darrow, Commercial Property Consultants
