Whether its a bar, bistro or funky burger joint our Leisure Business Rates team understand the industry and translate that into Business Rates savings.


The leisure industry is dynamic and fast moving, starkly contrasting the way it is taxed through business rates. At FHP, we know how to argue for a better deal that will benefit you.

Licensed premises are generally valued on the three bases:

  • Receipts
  • Price per m²
  • Contractors method

At FHP we have a strong understanding of all three methods and have been able to successfully argue for business rate reductions.

We always have our eyes open for other opportunities which may affect the performance of leisure premises.  An example of this is the savings achieved for our clients in Nottingham City centre, after our successful case accomplished a reduction in their rateable value, based upon the increased competition from the opening of a competing nightclub close to their premises.

There is no charge to place an appeal; our fees are purely success related and based on real savings achieved for our clients.
