No-one wants to spend more than they have to on business rates. So when we were able to put our specialist knowledge to work for Nando’s – saving them almost £600,000 a year between two restaurants – they were delighted they had taken the trouble to challenge the valuation.

  • Our advice helped slash the rateable value of the Nando’s restaurant at The Fort in Birmingham from £213,000 to £103,000 a year
  • At the Nando’s restaurant in One New Change, near St Paul’s in the City of London, we got the rateable value more than halved, with a fall from £287,500 to £126,000
  • With a rate payable of approximately 45 pence in the pound, the group has benefitted from a saving of £580,000 on just two restaurants
  • In the past 5 years we have saved Nando’s over £3.0m in money refunded from overpaid rates

In addition, clients we’re currently advising are amongst others:

  • Union Pub Company – we’re currently appealing against assessments on sites in Chiswick, Paddington and Shepherd’s Bush
  • Wahaca – the fast-growing chain of Mexican restaurants, with sites in Covent Garden, Canary Wharf, Bluewater, Westfield, Soho, to name but a few.
