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.

The Committee held that the down-turn in the Oil & Gas sector has impacted rental values in the City and that the limited rental evidence available indicated a drop which, in their opinion, was sufficient to constitute a “Material Change of Circumstance”. Whilst it is almost certain that the Grampian Assessor will appeal this decision to the Lands Valuation Appeal Court and there is a prospect that the outcome may be reversed as a result of this appeal, it would now be prudent for ALL OFFICE OCCUPIERS to lodge “Material Change” appeals prior to the 31st March 2017. Business Rates Revaluation proposals must be subject to a separate appeal.
