Rates management

"Left to their own devices, most recipients of a non-domestic rates demand will get out their pocket calculator and check that the arithmetic is correct, then sign it off for payment"

The arithmetic always will be - as the bill comes out of a computer! There is however rather more to a Rates bill than that.

Rates Management is an additional service that professionally qualified Rates Liability specialists at Sanderson Weatherall provide to a growing number of rating clients.

We arrange to receive business rates bills directly from the local billing authority, ratify and authorise these over a very short timescale, before reporting back to the client. Every account is given a multi-point check to ensure validity and accuracy. Where possible, we can often renegotiate instalment payments to aid the client's cash flow.

Based on available information and taking the often complex transitional arrangements into account, we can then work with our clients to produce timely and accurate budget forecasts.

If required, we can also arrange for the client to put us in funds to effect the payment of rates accounts by cheque, direct debit, BACS or most other methods.

By outsourcing the process of rates bills, we can save our clients considerable time and money. If you have ever tried in vain to contact the correct person at a local billing authority, you will know how difficult and time consuming this can be! (The hours just slip by!) Sanderson Weatherall liability experts deal regularly with the authorities concerned.

Our fees for this service are always extremely cost effective and a quotation, tailored to the job in hand, can be provided on request.
