Check Challenge and Appeal – Brave New World or Cloud Cuckoo Land?

Check Challenge and Appeal (CCA) is the largest change to the appeals regime for non-domestic rates since the 1988 Local Government Finance Act, and potentially since the Crown stopped counting windows as a property tax.

Ratepayers’ advisors and in-house teams will need to become familiar with the CCA regulations.

The 17th National Rating Day

The 2017 Revaluation is upon us. The draft rating lists have been published, as too are the UBR and transitional arrangements. But the big talk is of Check Challenge and Appeal. Controversial (CCA) and unwelcome but the regulations will govern how the rating practitioners and the Valuation Office Agency (VOA) must engage. Even more importantly, the regulations will set out how the VTE will deal with cases. What has happened to "reasonable professional judgement" and what is likely to take it's place. If you deal with rating, this is your must attend event of the year
