Whilst this is a welcome development, any reliefs are only applicable to the 2017/18 financial year whereas the proposed new rateable values will stand for 5 years, up to 31st March 2022; thus, in 12 months’ time, the rates payable will revert to the standard RV x rate poundage formula.   FG Burnett would therefore stress that it remains vital to challenge the proposed new rateable values through the appeal system as being the only approach which can potentially reduce this major business overhead in the longer term.

Richard Noble, Managing Director at FG Burnett comments: “I am delighted for Stuart and Moira, we reward effort and these two members of our team have key roles in maintaining and developing client relationships and driving our business forward.  In challenging times clients are looking for solid, clear professional advice, one of our core aims which both Stuart and Moira excel at. The 2017 Rating Revaluation is very topical and Moira will be working with Scott Strachan, as she did during the last revaluation, to ensure our clients’ new Rating Assessments are correct and that they are paying no more rates than they should be. Stuart will be working with his Building Consultancy colleagues on a wide range of projects with a focus on building our project management / monitoring presence here in the North East as well as Central Scotland, liaising with our existing client base and seeking out new opportunities.” [post_title] => Duo step up at FG Burnett [post_excerpt] => [post_status] => publish [comment_status] => open [ping_status] => open [post_password] => [post_name] => duo-step-up-at-fg-burnett [to_ping] => [pinged] => [post_modified] => 2017-01-19 11:51:25 [post_modified_gmt] => 2017-01-19 11:51:25 [post_content_filtered] => [post_parent] => 0 [guid] => http://fgburnett.co.uk/?p=7123 [menu_order] => 0 [post_type] => post [post_mime_type] => [comment_count] => 0 [filter] => raw ) [9] => WP_Post Object ( [ID] => 7094 [post_author] => 20 [post_date] => 2017-01-12 11:36:44 [post_date_gmt] => 2017-01-12 11:36:44 [post_content] => Union Street remains Aberdeen’s main commercial thoroughfare despite the pressures of covered shopping malls. Rents on Union Street have fallen in recent years, giving an opportunity for occupiers, who could not have previously afforded the overheads, to secure premises in such a high profile, high footfall location. This is illustrated by the availability of the prime unit at 131 Union Street, currently occupied by Thorntons who will vacate the unit in March due to a lease expiry. Agents FG Burnett will be marketing the unit with an asking rent of £55,000 per annum;   Thorntons had been paying an annual rent of £98,000.  The unit provides sales accommodation of 798 sq.ft at ground floor, with storage/staff facilities at lower levels.  The rateable value will also reduce from 1st April 2017. Richard Noble, Managing Director at FG Burnett comments: “This is an excellent opportunity for a retailer to take advantage of overheads which have become much more manageable in relation to a unit a stone’s throw from Primark, The Trinity Centre and a host of national retailers.  The majority of the blocks on Union Street have become much more affordable in recent years, with landlords also prepared to consider shorter term leases than may have traditionally been the case.”   [post_title] => Union Street Overhead Dip Provides Occupier Opportunity......
