Beware of Rogue Business Rates Agents

The Valuation Office Agency (VOA) is urging businesses to protect themselves from rogue business rates agents.

New rateable values for business properties came into effect in April 2023. Councils used these new values to calculate business rates bills. For more information, visit or recent insight – Business Rates List Closes Soon – CLICK HERE

Businesses can challenge their valuation if they think it’s incorrect. They can use a rating agent to do this. Some rogue agents submit inaccurate information, which can result in penalties or increased rates bills. Be cautious of anyone who guarantees they can secure big business rates reductions.
