Leisure & Entertainment

Leisure and entertainment business rates are commercial property taxes applied to venues like cinemas, theatres, sports facilities, and amusement parks. These rates significantly impact the operational costs of maintaining these venues, making it crucial for businesses to manage them effectively.

Calculating business rates for leisure and entertainment properties involves applying a specific multiplier to the property’s rateable value, assessed by the Valuation Office Agency (VOA). This assessment takes into account factors such as location, size, and rental value. With the 2023 reforms introducing the “Check, Challenge, Appeal” system, it has become essential for venue owners to seek professional guidance to navigate and potentially reduce these rates. We specialise in providing tailored services for leisure and entertainment venues, 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 venue remains financially viable and competitive.

We deploy local valuation experts who bring area-specific insights and proficiency, specifically tailored to the leisure and entertainment sector. Our team has extensive experience across multiple assessment periods, achieving significant reductions in commercial property taxes for various leisure and entertainment venues. 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.
