Business Rates and School Valuations

For independent schools, there may be turbulent times ahead. They are under increased scrutiny regarding their charitable status, which puts extra pressures on finances from increased business rates as well as other issues such as teachers’ pensions and a competitive sector.

Reduce your Business Rates

Via our ongoing rates reviews, we constantly work to mitigate our clients rates throughout the life cycles of their properties during multiple revaluation periods.

Our broad range of skills and wealth of experience means that whatever your organisation’s situation, we can identify opportunities for reducing your commercial property rates, and then pursue these effectively on your behalf. We will take care of all the hard work so you don’t have to.

Reduce your Council Tax

The challenge…

We have a longstanding relationship with City College Norwich who have instructed us to review their business rates liability since the 1995 rating revaluation, which continues until the current revaluation period.

The result…

Negotiations with the Valuation Officer led to reductions in the rateable value, which produced savings for the College of over £31,000 after mandatory relief.

“Our financially rewarding relationship with The Beattie Partnership goes back to 1998. The team continues to work tirelessly to make cost savings for our College.”
