Business Rates Services for Landlords
QuoinStone Professional Services provide advice to landlords seeking to reduce their commercial property business rates liability.
We apply a wealth of experience and expertise to reduce, manage and in some cases entirely remove rates liabilities.
Commercial property business rates are a complex tax and are often under-prioritised by property owners. The best approach to business rates is proactive. We do succeed in challenging past rates liabilities but it is far easier to mitigate a potential liability before it arises.
Our approach offers innovative and risk-free solutions to manage empty rates exposure. We work with our clients to strategically plan actions, interventions and mitigations to achieve the best results.
We can help
Landlords are only liable to pay business rates after the ‘rates free’ relief period, granted to all empty properties, has expired. There are several ways we can help you to reduce or remove those liabilities going forward.
In some circumstances we can achieve a 100% saving for Landlords. To find out if your property qualifies click here.
Looking after your tenants
As a landlord, we believe property owners should take an increasingly proactive role in reducing their tenants’ rates liabilities. This helps to ease their overall occupational costs and is good for all parties given the cumulative pressure of increased business costs, due to energy price rises and the compounding effect of inflation.

Our Approach to Reducing Rates
We assess the potential for our clients to mitigate their business rates liability. The action we recommend, to either remove the property from the rating list, appeal the level of rates paid or to introduce a short-term letting, will depend on a broad range of circumstances.
Where possible a permanent removal or reduction of rates liability is our preferred outcome although temporary reduction measures can be put into place where a property is expected to be re-let in the short to medium term.
