£600,000 Savings

“The Business Rates Team at Altus Group were able to negotiate a suspension of business rates payments whist submitting a Check application to VOA to ultimately reduce the business rates liability to nil. The outcome of the appeal was successful, which combined with the payment suspension, resulted in project cash-flow savings, from month one, of circa £50,000 per month or £600,000 over the course of the development period.”
