You may or may not be aware, but the rules regarding business rates are changing:
Appeals against Business Rates lodged by 31st March 2015 will be backdated, in many cases for as long as 5 years.
Any appeals lodged after 31st March 2015 will not be able to be backdated!
We, therefore, recommend that If you haven’t lodged an appeal yet then urgently consider doing so.
Important note: Take professional advice before lodging an appeal, Business Rates can also increase following an appeal so it is important to have your situation assessed before acting.
Act now to be sure you can access all the benefits available to you.
