Once we have discovered if you are likely to be able to appeal your rates then if you’re the owner, occupier or authorised agent of a property, you will need to register on the Government Gateway to appeal your rates, or to appoint an agent to appeal your rates for you.
You can sign in or register here.
It’s a relatively quick process, but these short videos explain step by step how you can appoint Biz Rates UK to appeal your rates.
Before attempting to register you will need your National Insurance number, date of birth and one other form of identification, such as – UK passport, P60 or payslips.
