Ei Publican Partnerships is boosting support for its publicans looking to access independent advice on business rates ahead of the revaluation that will be become effective from April.

Simon Millar, estates director at Ei Group, said: “We’ve decided to work with a panel of three selected specialist firms to support our publicans in ensuring they are paying the correct amount for their business rates.

“By choosing to use a member of our preferred panel of professional Chartered Surveyors, our publicans know they will be accessing a quality service that is both professional and reliable.

“Even if a pub receives a reduction in rates, that doesn’t automatically mean that that the new level shouldn’t be reviewed and potentially appealed as, in some cases, the proposed reductions should be a lot bigger.”

The company has examined the impact on its estate and believes that whilst rateable values (RV) are set to increase overall, with pubs in London and the south east of England particularly hardest hit, a significant number of pubs will nevertheless see their RV reduced and rates bills fall from April.
