LHL contacted Newbury Self Store after our forensic examination of the Rating List revealed an error in the valuation of one of the properties occupied by Newbury Self Store.
Newbury Self Store received a refund of over £2,000 after LHL identified a rates error on their storage unit.
The direct result was an immediate recalculation of the business rates charge which generated credits for the whole of the period from 2010 – 2015, also reducing their ongoing charges.
“We identified that The Non-Domestic Rating (Alteration of Lists and Appeals) (England) Regulations 2009 had been incorrectly applied for a number of properties , one of which was occupied by Newbury Self Stores’
The auditor dealing with the case was able to highlight to the Valuation Office the incorrect effective date and successfully argue a reduction in the clients business rates charges”
“Before using LHL Property Auditors Ltd, we had appointed a competitor company to try to get us a rebate on our business rates. That company had come back to us to say they were unable to get us any rebate. When LHL first contacted us, we were sceptical that they could do any better, however, with nothing to lose, we were happy for them to try. Needless to say, LHL were successful at getting us a rebate totalling in the thousands and also a slight rate reduction going forward. Best of all, it required no effort from us whatsoever, except for cashing the cheque! “
