In a challenging climate for retailers where landlords are reluctant to pay bills on vacant premises, collecting non-domestic rates can present local authorities with a time-consuming and expensive task.
Our Business Rates Collection Service is based on maximum contact during the compliance stage, while also delivering fast and effective enforcement when required. We deploy company searches to establish ability to pay and dedicated Business Rate teams who take prompt action and deliver transparent reporting.
Through our experience, knowledge and understanding of the local economy, and the way that Business Improvement Districts (BIDs) operate, our specialist teams have achieved unparalleled success in helping clients to recover unpaid funds.
Fraudulent activity and methods of avoidance proliferate and change on an annual basis. With this in mind, we have developed exclusive third-party relationships that will help you tackle even the most challenging cases extending to the post-enforcement stage.
No matter what challenges you face in collecting business rate debts, we will devise effective solutions to help you address repeat offenders who have a negative impact on the community.
