Gowlands is a family-run local firm of chartered surveyors operated by husband-and-wife team John and Fallon Gowland. They support ratepayers by offering a service dedicated to identifying and securing potential business rates savings through rateable value reductions and obtaining reliefs or exemptions.

Business rates are a considerable burden for any business, and reducing this cost can drive down overheads, help sustain business in challenging economic conditions and support growth.

Gowlands offers a comprehensive consultancy service that identifies potential savings by reviewing a property’s rateable value set by Land & Property Services, challenging the rateable value, and securing potential refunds.

 Gowlands’ independent review service has secured their clients over £8 million of business rates savings across a diverse range of sectors, from sole traders to multinationals.

John Gowland says, “We are proud of the savings we have achieved for many local business ratepayers over the past three General Revaluations. With many businesses feeling the strain from the “cost of doing business crisis”, our service is crucial to supporting them during these challenging economic times, and we look forward to continuing to support ratepayers through Reval 2023 and beyond.”

 If you feel that your business rates are too high or changes have been made to your property that might affect the amount you pay, particularly as we get closer to the General Revaluation in April 2023, please do not hesitate to get in touch with John Gowland, Head of Rating john@gowlandsni.com or Fallon Gowland, Operations Manager fallon@gowlandsni.com.
