Business rates impact all commercial properties, and the many and varied businesses housed within them, but each story for each business is very different.

At CVS we understand business rates, we understand the different sectors, the geographical locations, the business types – we can see the story behind the figures. Our dedicated data team are able to run the numbers to clearly illustrate how the Revaluation affects businesses within different regions and sectors, and we use our insight and analysis to inform businesses at a local level.

As a national business with local knowledge and an enviable database of comparable evidence, CVS is hard to beat when looking at the local picture.
