Franchise business rates are commercial property taxes applied to premises operated by franchisees, such as retail stores, restaurants, and service centers. Managing these rates effectively is crucial for the financial health of any franchise business.

Calculating business rates for franchise properties involves applying a specific multiplier to the property’s rateable value, as assessed by the Valuation Office Agency (VOA). This assessment considers factors like location, size, and rental value. With the 2023 reforms introducing the “Check, Challenge, Appeal” system, franchise owners must seek professional guidance to navigate and potentially reduce these rates. We specialise in providing tailored services for franchises, offering expert evaluations and handling the entire process to secure significant savings. Our goal is to alleviate the financial burden of business rates, ensuring your franchise remains financially viable and competitive.

We deploy local valuation experts who bring area-specific insights and proficiency, specifically tailored to franchises. Our team has extensive experience across multiple assessment periods, achieving significant reductions in commercial property taxes for various franchise properties. So far we have achieved savings for Gym and Fitness Franchises as well as Retail up and down the country. Our success-based compensation model ensures fees are charged only on achieved savings, with no upfront costs. Our experts manage the entire tax reduction process, starting with a preliminary assessment or physical evaluation of the property to identify any overvaluation.
