Intermittent Occupation

When a building becomes vacant, the beneficial occupier is eligible to receive 3 months empty rates relief. We implement a solution that relies on a period of occupation of six weeks to ‘trigger’ an entitlement to a further three-month period of relief from empty rate liability. The solution uses the temporary substantial storage of goods or documents.

With a 100% successful track record, this is the most dependable strategy available when seeking to mitigate empty rates liability on a short-term basis. The LOWE Group will set this up with Valuation Office Agency and manage the process. We can operate on very flexible terms, and this will allow you to let the space when required.

Charitable Occupation

Charitable Occupation can provide guaranteed savings of between 80 – 100%. We work with genuine charities, who use the property to drive social value and change. Every charity we work with is registered with the charitable commission and eligible for a mandatory 80% business rates relief. Identifying these business rates loopholes can save you hundreds of pounds. We manage all aspects of the relationship and ensure that the rates relief are successfully applied for.
