Montagu Evans provide our clients with an authentic and professional approach to rating consultancy.

Our aim is to provide dedicated expertise, to eliminate risk, minimize overheads and remove bureaucracy over a long period. Our service is partner led and proactive. We are leaders in the area of business rates because we make a point of putting our clients’ best interests first.

Montagu Evans has a lead position in negotiations with the Valuation Office Agency. Our surveyors advise the industry sector on market trends and evidence. Our leverage and experience, born out of our recognised lead position, allows us a 'special' position in rating negotiations and helps us to avoid delays and to pre-empt budgetary outcomes.
Through committee membership of the RICS Local Taxation Committee and the Rating Surveyors Association, we are always 'in the know' when it comes to Government thinking and reforms to the system.
