Next year (2017) will bring an opportunity to have your property completely re-assessed for Business Rates.
Although occupiers of business premises can have their Rateable Value checked within 6 months of taking occupation, this is done within the context of the prevailing current system. A full revaluation only usually happens every 5 years, however in 2012 the Scottish Government decided to defer the revaluation due in 2015 until 2017.
The revaluation offers a great chance to reduce one of the biggest overhead costs facing a business - and with the right help and advice the savings can be very significant indeed.
We understand that the Rating system is not particularly straightforward and it is very important to get it done right - as the results will be felt for at least the next 5 years. At Smart & Co we are delighted to offer great advice which is born from nearly two decades of experience gained directly 'at the coal-face'.
So, to take advantage of the opportunities this revaluation will afford, contact us for an initial no cost or obligation conversation.
