"As a forward-thinking company, we wanted to make sure our costs weren’t stuck in the past. We chose CVS to reduce our rates as they are Britain’s leading business rates specialists. They maintained their sterling reputation. We are delighted with the service provided and would recommend CVS to any other business looking to reduce their rates."

James Dalrymple, On behalf of Arun Estate Agencies LTD

Arun Estates are the largest independent estate agency in South East England, with over 100 branches operating under five different trading brands. They are a company driven by results, which is why they instructed CVS to look at their Rateable Value across the 2005 and 2010 Lists.

Results

Upon instruction, CVS quickly realised that savings could be returned to Arun Estates based on a reduction in the base rate applied to the property. This, in turn, resulted in a successful outcome in reducing the Rateable Value of the subject property from £20,000 to £12,000, generating significant savings across the seven year Rating List.

CVS Comment:

"As with all of our clients, we carried out a full inspection of the property in question, reviewing in detail rent history. Although the rent on the subject property supported the tone, by colluding with other agents and pooling rental information I was able to negotiate a reduction in the base rate applied from £450/m2 to £270/m2, resulting in significant savings for our client."
