Empty Rates Mitigation

After an initial 3 or 6 month exemption period, business rates for properties in England and Wales must be paid regardless of whether the property is then occupied or vacant, if left unchallenged.

The CPRA empty property business rates mitigation team have developed a variety of strategies to minimize the empty business rates burden for our clients with empty properties that are either completely vacant or partially vacant. We act on behalf of developers, landlords and tenants and we can reduce empty property business rates costs by anything between 10 - 100% depending on the specific reasons that the commercial property is empty and the ratepayer is still liable to pay business rates to the local council.

We act quickly, decisively and follow the current law on empty property business rates every step of the way to make sure that our empty rates mitigation schemes are effective and lawful. If you have empty or part-vacant commercial units and you are liable to pay business rates, then why not give us a call on 020 7770 8000 or click Contact Us to find out how much you could save.
