Business rates advice: appealing against rates
If you disagree with the rateable value in the current rating list for your property, you can challenge it by contacting your local valuation office (Valuation Office Agency homepage).
If you require advice about whether to appeal against rateable values you are advised to consult a reputable independent rating adviser. Please take care - there may be fraudsters operating in this area.
