We Can Help You With Business Rates In Staffordshire & Cheshire

Most business premises are subject to local taxation by the payment of business rates. Rory Mack are based in Newcastle under Lyme, Stoke on Trent

The amount payable is set every year by Central Government and charged under the Uniform Business Rate multiplier, with revenues being collected by your local authority.

There are several reasons why your rateable value may have changed:

  • You have made significant changes to the size, layout or use of your business premises
  • The premises are adversely affected by a change in circumstances. For example, a road closure or building works
  • The assessment does not correspond to a hypothetical rental value

What Are Business Rates?

Business rates are charged on most non domestic properties such as shops, offices, pubs, warehouses, factories and guesthouses. If you're using a property for anything other than domestic purposes then you'll have to pay business rates on these. There are ways in which you can get reliefs on these. But in order to do this, you will have to give us a call so we can see what situation you're in and if we can help to save you money on your business rates. If you would like to speak to one of our friendly team then be sure to call us on 01782 715725 to speak to our friendly team who have years of experience in the field.

How Are Business Rates Calculated?

Business rates are worked out based on your property?s ?rateable value?. This is based on the open market rental value on 1 April 2015, based on an estimate by the Valuation Office Agency. You can estimate your business rates by multiplying the rateable value by the correct ?multiplier?. Your bill will be reduced if your property?s eligible for business rates relief.
