Business rates Reduction for Small Businesses

If your business only occupies one single property and you have a rateable value below a specific threshold then you are likely to be eligible for small business rates relief. Small business relief is available to a large amount of properties with a rateable value below £12,000. However, if you have multiple properties the relief is only applicable if the rateable value is less than £2,600. Properties with a rateable value below £6,000 are entitled to up to 100% relief and properties with a rateable value between £6,001 and £12,000 will be calculated on a sliding scale. Small business relief multipliers are available for businesses with a rateable value below £25,500 in London or £18,000 in England. Businesses who meet the requirements will be entitled to a lower multiplier which is then used to calculate your rateable value – in most cases this is automatically applied by your billing authority. No matter what your circumstances, our elite team of reduction specialists will go above and beyond to lower your rates, making sure that as a business you are in the very best position moving forward.

Here at NG (UK) Associates, we are more than aware that reductions can be obtained and granted for many different reasons and on numerous grounds. Reductions can be obtained due to a split in the current rating assessment, inaccurate measurements recorded by the Valuation Office Agency (VOA), incorrect tone applied to the property valuation/ assessment and many other factors which can also affect how properties are rated and how these are calculated. In order to ensure you are paying the correct amount, ratepayers have the right to have their assessment appealed each rating period.
