Historic Audit

The process for calculating business rates liabilities is complex and varies across England, Scotland and Wales.

Why do I need to check my business rates bill?

Multiple factors relating to the ratepayer’s individual circumstances can affect their final bill, including:

  • Changes in Rateable Value
  • Changes in occupation
  • Properties having been vacated or disposed of
  • Reliefs and exemptions being awarded
  • Amounts paid

In some cases, the Billing Authority responsible for generating the demand may make a miscalculation based on incorrect facts which, unbeknown to the ratepayer, could lead to them being overcharged by potentially thousands of pounds.
