Rating and Taxation

What we do

On behalf of occupiers, investors, and developers we reduce costs, maximise tax reliefs and refunds, and manage risk through a comprehensive range of rating services across all business sectors and real estate asset classes: including financial services, technology media and telecoms, fast moving consumer goods, retail, licensed and leisure, industrial, energy, and infrastructure.

We know that every client has different requirements and operates with different economic and environmental drivers. That is why we tailor our rating services to meet their individual needs.
Our objective is to deliver:-

  • The lowest possible rates liability
  • The reassurance that we are defending your interests through active management of your portfolio
  • The ability for you to budget with confidence when making property decisions

Through a team of 35 rating surveyors based across our UK and Ireland office network we have long term track record of delivering results on single assets and national portfolios.

Reducing bottom line property costs

With business rates forming an increasingly significant element of bottom line property costs we formulate a hard hitting appeals strategy which focuses on reducing annual payments.

Leveraging changing circumstances

Changes which impact on the use or occupation of a property can give rise to a rates savings opportunity. By thinking creatively we ensure that all new savings opportunities are captured.

Cash flow and budgeting

Through a dedicated rates audit team we recover historic overpayments whether they be due to error, retrospective taxation relief, or change brought about by legal recourse. CBRE audit service extends across wider property costs and taxes including capital allowances and utility payments. Accurate information ensuring our clients can budget for future rating costs with confidence.

Rates management and payment

Whether it’s either checking rates demands prior to authorising payment or a more comprehensive rates management service the CBRE team is able to help.
