About Us

Reducing costs and creating opportunities
in the Education and Commercial sector
are our passions

Don (Beattie) started the business back in 1994.

Experience, close collaboration and easing the process of business rates and Council Tax has enabled the business to grow into a great team, working across the country advising clients on rating and corporate property matters.

We provide a targeted service for the commercial and education sectors – our collective talent pool draws on over 350 years’ experience, having amassed over 800 clients across the UK to endorse our services.

“We have been impressed with the professional and friendly service we have received from the Beattie Partnership and with the money saved.”

Who we are

We are a friendly and approachable firm of Chartered Surveyors, having been established over 25 years ago, working tirelessly to save our clients’ money on their business rates and Council Tax.

What we stand for

Our hallmark is dealing with each job as a bespoke project, starting with its own high-level partner triage, with a surveyor then being tasked with pursuing an appeal where appropriate.

In the background, our administrative team deals with securing any eligible reliefs and rebates – ensuring the clients always comes first.

How can we help?

Simply scan and email over a copy rates bill and we can review your property portfolio on a ‘no obligation’ basis. We will conduct some initial research and let you know our thoughts on the scope to appeal.
