Leigh Franklin Surveyors Leigh W Franklin has been involved with business rates valuations and appeals for some 25 years, including 7 years with the Valuation Office. In most cases only one appeal is permitted so it is advisable to use an experienced rating surveyor. It is essential that a full appraisal and valuation are initially undertaken to establish whether or not an appeal is appropriate.

This appraisal is completely free of charge. A fee is payable only when the appeal process is complete and the client has received their refund/credit from the rating authority. Business Rates is a form of taxation levied on the occupier of commercial premises. It is collected by the local authority on behalf of the government. Rateable Value - Business Rates Appeals - Rating lists are compiled every five years - 1990, 1995, 2000, 2005, 2010 and so on - this is known as Revaluation.

Transitional Arrangements - The basic principle of non-domestic rates is that the amount payable per year is the Rateable Value multiplied by the National Non Domestic Rating Multiplier or Uniform Business Rate (UBR).

I have an excellent track record of successful appeals on behalf of many clients. However, not every rates assessment is excessive and for that reason I carry out a full appraisal prior to recommending an appeal. I do not submit speculative appeals, there are unfortunately many instances of rateable values being increased when an appeal has been submitted with no formal upfront valuation.

It gives details of every commercial property in England and Wales. There is a similar document for properties in Scotland called the Valuation Roll, which is compiled by the Assessors Office. The entry includes the address, the description and the Rateable Value (RV) of the property. The VOA or Assessors Office has a duty to maintain an accurate list and will make alterations to the list - new entries, deletions, changes to the Rateable Value - whenever necessary.
