Stockport Grammar School, Cheshire

The Challenge

Stockport Grammar School have instructed us to review their business rates liabilities since the 2000 Rating List together with the latest revaluation.

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 school.

The Result

Negotiations with the Valuation Officer led to reductions in the former List rateable value which produced savings for the School of over £30,000 after mandatory relief.
