“We have been extremely satisfied with the service provided by CVS. We were kept up to date with the appeals every step of the way and found the whole process simple to complete. The savings CVS have generated for us will be reinvested into the business.”

Simon Brookshaw, Financial Controller, The Saville Group

At the forefront of the UK industry for more than forty years, The Saville Group specialises in the sales, hire and installation of AV equipment and integrated systems, including LCD projectors, plasma & LCD screens, video conferencing and digital signage networks. CVS was asked to see if their business rates could be reduced across their warehouse and office sites.

Results

By compiling strong cases of evidence, regarding property locality, access and machinery & fixtures, CVS argued the different cases to the Valuation Office Agency (VOA) and agreed reductions across five UK sites covering office, warehouse and retail space. Total savings of over £42,000 have been delivered back to The Saville Group to date across the seven year Rating List.

CVS Comment:

“By looking at comparable properties in the locality of the client’s sites, we were able to find discrepancies in the information the VOA had used to calculate the Rateable Values of the subject properties. Reductions were achieved by highlighting these differences and ensuring that The Saville Group’s properties were assessed fairly and in line with other sites in close proximity.”
