Business Rate On Festival and Event Sites - Action needed

Some festivals especially green field sites will in recent years have had notification of a charge for business rates either from the landowner or direct from the local authority.

A revaluation exercise is now underway and will result in a Revaluation of all business premises , including festival sites on 1st March 2023. The key valuation date for this review is however 1st April 2021.  AFO recommends members should get ahead of the game and take advice well in advance of the review, particularly if their festival takes place on private land

Our good friends at Chartered Surveyors BANKIER SLOAN have kindly agreed to help where necessary with advice and/or action on your behalf.  Email [email protected]
