JMA are recognised as business rates specialists and we have saved our clients' tens of millions of pounds over the past 30 years.


As the new Check, Challenge, Appeal (CCA) system that came into force on 1st April 2017 requires anyone seeking a reduction in business rates to provide legal argument and Expert opinion at the outset, business rates is for "Experts only".


Given that JMA are an RICS Regulated firm using RICS Registered Valuers who are trained Expert Witnesses, this change has been to our client's advantage. 


While others are floundering with the new system JMA have been the first firm of Surveyors in England to

  • have a 2017 appeal heard at the Valuation Tribunal in London
  • have 3 cases on the 2017 rating list before the Upper Tribunal (Lands Chamber).

But far more importantly, we are still securing sizeable reductions and six figure refunds for our clients. 


All cases are dealt with directly by our principal, Andrew Bacon Bsc(Hons) MRICS APAWE, who has 30 years experience and appeared before the Valuation Tribunal and Lands Tribunal on legal and valuation matters.


With more than 9000 rating appeals under our belt we can tell quickly whether or not you have a case for a reduction and then plot a route through the legal and evidentiary minefield of CCA to ensure you have the best chance of securing it.
