The British Hospitality Association (BHA) announces Altus Group as newest partner
The BHA and Altus Group have established this timely partnership to provide services to help BHA members reduce their business rates liability and update them on relevant changes to the Business Rates system and how this may affect them.
Over the last 60 years, Altus Group has built up one of the most highly regarded and trusted professional property advisory services in the UK. They represent over 16,000 clients and understand the intricacies of the hospitality sector representing both hospitality SME’s through to larger organisations.
David Shuttleworth Vice President, Altus Group, said: “Our focus on professionalism, responsiveness and quality of service is why we are now one of the largest Business Rates specialists in the UK, with over 120 staff directly involved in Rating across 13 offices nationwide. We have generated business rates savings of over £400 million since April 2010, achieving an average reduction for our clients of over 16 per cent. We also have the largest rent and rates database in the country which, when combined with our own analytical software, gives us a unique advantage to achieve better results for BHA members in the hospitality sector.
Whether you are a small independent or a multisite chain; we look forward to helping by offering our expert guidance and free consultation to all BHA members.”
Phil Wade, Marketing Director of the BHA said: “An increase to business rates from 2017 is one of the substantial challenges facing many of our members, especially considering the other cost-pressures our industry is already having to respond to. The experience of Altus and their analytic capability means they have both the comprehensive evidence on which to launch valid challenges and the insight so appeals are prosecuted at the most beneficial time.
