Coronavirus Business Rates Group Action | Altus Property Services

Covid-19 Group Action by Altus Group

Be part of the biggest group based challenge to the business rates system

Strength in numbers. Join our Group Action.


We estimate over 85% of businesses in England and Wales could claim for a reduction in business rates liability under our Covid-19 Group Action.


While some businesses have received Government financial assistance to reduce their business rates bills, many have not – despite Covid-19 affecting all ratepayers.


A catastrophic fall in demand has resulted in the rental value of many buildings reducing dramatically, causing a structural change in the property market. We believe this change means that businesses can submit challenges to reduce their rates assessment and argue for lower rates bills.


Businesses who join our Group Action will be a part of the biggest ever group based challenge to the business rates system.

No, changes in occupation will not prevent us from making a claim.
