Lisney believes that if your business has an opportunity to reduce its commercial rates, you should take it. We provide expert analytical advice on rating assessments to ensure that business overheads are minimised.


Many occupiers find that commercial rates are one of the biggest expenses when doing business.

Lisney has been helping companies to reduce their business rates for 80 years. In fact, our company was originally founded as a rating advisory company in 1934 and so we have more experience in making representations and appeals to the valuation office than anyone else.


At Lisney, our rating experts can identify technical grounds for appealing against your rating assessment including material inaccuracies on floor area, recent physical changes, status of occupation and insufficient adjustments

This is particularly relevant as the 2020 valuation is now underway in Northern Ireland and all commercial property is being revalued and will change the basis of your rates liability – make sure it is correct.
