Empty Rate Mitigation and Reliefs

With the overhaul of Empty Rate legislation in 2008, business rates can certainly no longer be considered a tax on occupation. Landlords and tenants alike now face significant liability for buildings which they do not occupy.

While we will employ our usual Rating Appeal service to minimise this liability, we also provide a comprehensive Rate Mitigation service.

We have significant expertise in dealing with the legislation which governs the application of empty rates and push at its boundaries to minimise our clients’ exposure to liability.

We have enjoyed much success in securing various classes of empty rate reliefs and in a number of cases we have been successful in fully extinguishing a client’s empty rate liability.
