Business Rates Review

Generate additional in-year revenue with our Business Rates Review Service

Do you have businesses that are not paying NNDR or growth that has not been reported to the council? Our service offers a “no risk” way of identifying underrated or missing rateable value and is available via the Government’s G Cloud Framework.

We offer a fully managed service so your teams to focus on the delivery of vital services – all you do is forward the evidence to the VoA and await the results.

Some councils call this “RV Finder”:  £1,000,000 of additional RV for one unitary authority in the East Midlands – see the case study below.

The Business Rates Review is part of Liberata’s Income Maximisation service together with our Empty Homes and SPD solutions.

Rebecca Keene
Broxbourne Borough Council
Eastleigh Borough Council has worked with Liberata for a number of years who undertake the council's empty home reviews, and I must say, their service exceeded all expectations. From start to finish, they demonstrated professionalism, efficiency, and a genuine commitment to addressing this critical issue in our community. Thanks to Liberata, the council has been able to maximise our empty home bonus year on year. This positive impact on our community cannot be overstated.
Kerrie Thomas
Eastleigh Borough Council
The RV Finder service from Liberata has really helped us ensure that our data is as accurate as possible and, when the VOA has processed the outstanding cases, I fully expect to see more than £1,000,000 of additional RV. The “risk and reward” model works well and the Council only has to pay for their success and the service is something that we will use on a regular basis.

Liberata has been empowered to create a seamless integration with technology to digitally transform the Revenues and Benefits service whilst trying to protect local jobs. The joint strategy has helped to deliver innovative solutions that have exceeded expectations, whilst providing savings to the authority. This surge in digital engagement has helped deliver strong year one outturn with electronic billing and the technology will enable us to show improvements in the benefits speed of processing and in Council Tax processing of moves, discounts and exemptions.
