The webinar will explore business rates in general; including key talking points such as how long rates have been in operation, how it has evolved and why it is a perceived as a successful tax.
In addition, the presentation will examine what rateable value represents as well as an explanation of the rating process, concentrating on how rates have evolved and why they are sometimes so confusing and difficult to understand.
The presentation will then move to the forthcoming revaluation, including the new appeal process being implemented by the VOA called ‘Check, Challenge, Appeal’. Forthcoming ‘milestones’ will also be explained, laying out the changes heading into 2017. A 15 minute live Q&A session will conclude the webinar.
