Maughan Mitchell were excited to be instructed to advise John Reid & Sons (Strucsteel), one of UK’s top steelwork construction & cladding companies, with a worldwide reputation, following a referral from their trusted RICS property adviser, who did not cover Business Rates.

REIDSteel, at the point of our instructions, were looking at undertaking an ambitious redevelopment of their site and had taken on additional properties –

Under our advice, Reid have managed to secure significant periods of Empty Rates relief on newly acquired vacant space.

Our specialist Rating Advice has also led to appeals against the level of assessment of their operational site, with these appeals ongoing.

The longer term aim is to guide Reid through the redevelopment, from a Business Rates perspective. Maughan Mitchell have a high level of specialist expertise in the area of Business Rates and Empty Rates, necessary to ensure the best outcome.

Business Rates Savings from our efforts, to date, are in excess of £85,000, but this is only the start of our involvement, so watch this space!
