Rhode Island Coffee

The Challenge

Rhode Island Coffee instructed us to review their property portfolio during the 2000, 2005 and current 2019 revaluations. We have developed a solid relationship with Rhode Island Coffee for whom we have been able to achieve considerable savings.

The Solution

We surveyed the properties using our extensive knowledge of shops and premises. The valuation of cafes is more challenging due to potential for valuing on different bases and the different layout from a conventional shop.

The Result

Negotiations with Valuation Officers across the sites lead to reduction in 2005 rateable values for Rhode Island Coffee with total actual savings over £42,000.

“Beattie’s have consistently performed in saving money off the rating assessments of our shops and we look forward to continuing results.”
