City College, Norwich

The Challenge

City College Norwich instructed us to review their business rates liability for the 1995, 2000, 2005 and current 2010 revaluation. We have developed a solid relationship with the College for whom we have been able to achieve considerable savings.

The Solution

We surveyed the premises using our extensive knowledge of educational establishments. By fostering a good client relationship and utilising over 30 years of experience in the field of rating, we were able to secure a series of reductions in rateable value for the College.

The Result

Negotiations with the Valuation Officer led to reductions in the 2005 rateable value which produced savings for the College of over £31,000 after mandatory relief.
