Last chance to appeal 2017 rating list

Act now to ensure you do not lose your chance to make savings

The government has confirmed that the 2017 rating list will close on 31 March 2023. This is the deadline for any checks to be submitted.

If a check has not been lodged against your rateable values/assessment by 31 March 2023, then your opportunity to make savings will be lost.

If you haven’t done so already you may be missing out on £1,000’s in refunds dating back to 1 April 2017.

Even if you have considered your liabilities at an earlier point, if there have been any changes to your property or in the locality you should also consider a further review.

During the pandemic, the government provided various reliefs which may have reduced your liabilities but as these are now coming to an end, full liabilities may resume at any time.

We anticipate a large volume of checks being submitted nationally towards the end of the current cycle; therefore, it is imperative you do not leave this to the last minute which could unnecessarily delay savings that may be due.

Arrange a free, no-obligation audit of your rateable values

To ensure you do not lose your chance to make savings, Cluttons are offering a free audit of your rateable values. We can advise upon any potential actions that could be taken to mitigate your liability and potentially claim a refund of overpayments going as far back as 1 April 2017.

We anticipate a large volume of checks being submitted nationally towards the end of the current cycle; therefore, it is imperative you do not leave this to the last minute which could unnecessarily delay savings that may be due.

Please fill out this form and one of our specialists will be in contact to advise you.

With the online sales tax consultation now closed, what can we expect, and will it happen any time soon?

Rishi Sunak was plauded by most for responding so quickly to support small businesses as Covid hit. But what a shame the years of campaigning didn’t trigger a revolutionary business rates consultation before an unprecedented global pandemic hit an already underperforming high street retail and shopping centre sector.
