Earlier this year we wrote about the changes to rules governing alterations to business rates, which you can read in full here. The deadline for business rates appeals is now fast approaching so if your business has overpaid on business rates between 1st April 2010 and 31st March 2015 then you must act fast.
Any appeals lodged after the 31st March will only be back-dated to 1st April 2015 so if you don’t act soon you may miss out on five years of rate refunds. If you believe this applies to your business, we recommend instructing a reputable rating specialist to submit an appeal as soon as possible.
