As cost pressures mount on businesses, it’s worth checking to see if you are paying the correct amount before launching an appeal. The check is free and without obligation.

Challenging your business rates can be confusing and time consuming. Cheshire Property Advisers can make this process straight forward and easy to understand by doing this on your behalf – ensuring that you benefit from the maximum saving possible.


The rates that you will be paying from 1st April, 2017 are dependent on the 2015 'rateable value' of your premises which can be checked on the Valuation Office Agency website. The deadline to appeal your rateable value is 31st March, 2017. Businesses challenging their rates can appeal directly to the Valuation Office Agency (VOA) if they have sufficient grounds to do so. By checking a number of factors highlighted in our step-by-step guide, find out whether you are eligible to challenge the VOA's rateable value and reduce your business rates costs.
