Power & Associates comprehensive advice based on over 20 years experience of the provision of property services in relation to retail, commercial, industrial and residential development.
Commercial Rates is an established form of taxation on commercial property.
Commercial Rates are payable by the occupier of commercial properties to the Local Authority.
There is a complex series of procedures for dealing with rates and it is essential that all appropriate steps are properly adhered to.
Drawing on our vast experience and bank of information, Power & Associates can quickly advise whether or not the Valuation Office’s assessment on your property is fair and whether it is worth appealing.
When instructed to, Power & Associates will appeal a valuation on your behalf and endeavour to reduce your annual rates bill. The burden of rates is carried entirely by the commercial sector and is a now serious overhead in any business such that any opportunity to make savings must be pursued.
Where a property is newly constructed or where there are other material changes, a property can be valued or re-valued and the occupier will have an opportunity to make submissions to the Revision Officer in the Valuation Office.
We can examine the proposed assessment and make submission on your behalf and appeal to the Valuation Tribunal as necessary. We have achieved substantial savings for some of clients in the past.
