Empty Rates


Are you struggling to pay business rates on your empty property?

Did you know, empty property rates are an avoidable tax?

Roger Hannah & Co can devise a strategy to mitigate your liability:

  • Temporary Occupation - we can develop a strategy allowing you to benefit from empty rates exemption periods with the potential to reduce your empty rates liability by up to 100%.
  • Prohibition by Law - where occupation of a property is prohibited by law rates should not be payable. We have a track record of successfully achieving reductions of 100% on such grounds.
  • Refurbishment / Redevelopment - properties undergoing significant refurbishments / redevelopment are not rateable, although many Authorities try and resist granting exemptions. We have vast experience and 100% success rate in dealing with this complex issue. View Case Study.
