Maughan Mitchell were instructed to advise Hargreaves Lansdown, in minimising their rates liabilities, during their move to new 100,000 sq ft HQ offices, in Bristol Harbourside.

Through negotiations with the Valuation Office, we successfully achieved a phasing in of their Rating Assessments for the new HQ building, while mitigating rates on their existing locations in Clifton. Further, we were able to produce additional Rates Savings by securing a reduction in the new building’s Assessment and a temporary allowance during the period of neighbouring building works.

Business Rates Savings from our efforts was in excess of £2,000,000.
