Business Rates & Council Tax - Can You Pay Less?

Business Rates & Council Tax – Can You Pay Less?

Could you save money on your business rates or council tax?

A significant part of your running costs will be business rates or council tax. The issue is complex and information used to assess rates payable may well be based on out of date information. We are fortunate to have a local company in Kendal who have vast experience of appealing against business rates / council tax bills and we would like to introduce you to their services. Butler Thompson Associates will be happy to discuss the possibility of having your property surveyed with a view to an appeal against your current bill.

The variety of personal and business circumstances means a one size fits all approach is not realistic and so Butler Thompson work from scratch with each new case.

Fees are payable for their services, but the return could be very worthwhile if it is thought you may be paying too much at present. We are delighted to have seen many owners realise a significant saving in their rates, due to this initiative.

Please see below for some documents offering general advice on what you need to know on this topic. If you wish to contact Butler Thompson, you can call Barry Butler on 01539 735353 or email: Website –
