PAID TOO MUCH ON YOUR PRE-PANDEMIC BUSINESS RATES?
Before the recent temporary reprieve, business rates were a major cost for hoteliers and we know that appealing them is often the most effective way of ensuring that you're paying the right amount. That’s why we’ve teamed up with Powells Property to bring you a Rating Valuer with the expertise to support you through the often complex and time-consuming appeals process.
With a wealth of knowledge in the hospitality and leisure industry, Powells is currently saving customers an average of *15% on their pre-pandemic business rates. Furthermore, they always carry out a free rating appraisal before any appeal work, so they can give an honest and transparent assessment on the likelihood of it being successful.
Their fee arrangements are also extremely competitive, as many of their competitors charge between 25% and 50% of any savings achieved - with some also basing their fees on future savings as well as retrospective ones. However, Powells has agreed to a flat fee of only 20% for Beacon members, including:
Any refunds that are due
Payable savings up to and including the rating year when the appeal is finalised
This type of fee structure gives you the benefit of fully owning any future savings up to the end of the rating list.
