If you occupy commercial property, whether you are liable to pay business rates or not, it probably won't have escaped your attention that a nationwide Revaluation of all commercial property in Scotland is underway with effect from 1st April 2017.

businessratesadvice.com have lodged over three hundred appeals throughout Scotland on behalf of a wide range clients from SMEs to larger scale operators which include the likes of Ascensos, Soccerworld and the Maxi Group.

The appeals cover the full spectrum of property types from tradional shops, office and industrial premises to more specialised properties such as windfarms and timeshare lets. The locations range from Aberdeen in the north and Dumfries in the south.

The 30th September 2017 deadline for lodging appeals has now passed but if you have recently taken on (or are about to take on) a property or if there has been a sudden change to your business, please get in touch as we may be able to assist.

We expect the appeal process to start gathering pace in early 2018. Even if you have lodged an appeal yourself it is still not too late to an appoint a professional advisor like ourselves.

Please do contact our team to talk through any rates issues or queries you have. We would be delighted to hear from you.
