About Us


Porter and Gunn Associates have many years experience in successfully challenging and reducing Rateable Values for our clients.

Business rates are charged by local authorities based on rateable values set by the Valuation Office Agency (VOA).

The VOA's opinion of value is subject to challenge and will often be excessive.

There are numerous schemes of rates relief potentially available to ratepayers, but these are not always applied by local authorities as they should be.

Our business rates specialists have the expertise to ensure your liability is not a penny higher than it should be. We will challenge rateable values where necessary and also ensure your bill is correctly calculated.

There are new rules relating to how business rates is calculated starting from April 1st 2017. Many of our clients will be completely exempt from rates from this date. Why not see if you can join them? Call us on 07473 920186.

Revaluation 2017- How Will it Affect You?

All non-domestic properties in England and Wales were nationally revalued in 2010. The 2017 Revaluation will be based upon rental levels at 1st April 2015 and will form the basis of your business rates liability for the next five years.

It is important to understand the implications of this Revaluation. The draft Rating List has now been issued (30th September 2016) and so we now know what your business rates liability is going to be for the next 5 years.

Porter and Gunn Associates can calculate your forthcoming annual liability, and our expert team can advise on whether this liability can be reduced. In many cases we are able to reduce our clients liability to zero, or reduce them substantially.

Our expert Business Rates team can advise on all aspects of business rates. Our specialists can also support with additional appeal and relief opportunities to minimise your liability over the next five years.

To find out how we can help you through the 2017 revaluation or for general business rates enquiries, please contact or call us on 07473 920186.
