Commercial property taxes, known as business rates, are levied on properties used for automotive businesses, such as dealerships, garages, and showrooms. These taxes are calculated by applying the Standard Business Rates Multiplier to the property's assessed value, determined by rental data from the Valuation Office Agency (VOA).

For automotive businesses, the assessed value can also consider revenue or production figures. The complexity in challenging these valuations has increased, requiring automotive businesses to engage experts to navigate the post-2023 “Check, Challenge, Appeal” system.

We specialise in reducing business rates for automotive properties, leveraging local valuation experts with extensive industry knowledge. Our success-based compensation model ensures fees are only charged based on achieved savings, with no upfront costs.

We deploy local valuation experts, bringing area-specific insights and proficiency. These professionals boast distinguished careers and lead in their respective fields, including hotels, serviced apartments, automobile dealerships, golf courses, showrooms, bars, retail spaces, and office buildings.

Our team possesses experience across multiple assessment periods, achieving significant reductions in commercial property taxes for an array of property types. So far we have achieved savings for MOT centres, Tyre and Garages as well as showrooms to name a few.

Our compensation model is success-based, charging a fee only on the savings achieved, with no initial charges. Our experts oversee the entire tax reduction journey, starting with a preliminary assessment or physical evaluation of the property to determine if it has been overvalued.
