Battlezone – Refunded £12,500, a 15% reduction plus £25,000 Grant

Battlezone Laser is a ‘laser tag’ leisure facility that operates out of an industrial unit in Team Valley, Gateshead.

Our Business Rates experts successfully negotiated a rates reduction from a rateable value of £51,500 to £43,500 for this business.

This reduction means the rateable value is now below the small business rates ceiling of £51,000 and the tenant now qualifies for the Government £25,000 grant for small business leisure relief which has saved the business.

  • Old rateable value: £51,500
  • New rateable value: £43,500
  • Rateable value saving: £8,000
  • Percentage saving: 15%
  • Refunded: £12,500 in 2020 rate year

Roy, Battlezone

‘’I instructed Biz Rates to appeal our rateable value of £51,500. They took all the information required and went away and secured a reduction to £43,500.

This reduction qualified us for the Government £25,000 grant which has saved the business and will allow us to continue trading.

They were very knowledgeable about the local area and provided a professional service. I would recommend them to anyone.’’

Jonathan Weastell, Head of Rating

“This case was two interconnected warehouse units where the values were different, despite being of the similar construction.

I got the valuation office to reduce the rates per sqm based on age and quality. Local knowledge and an eye for detail won this case.”
