Business Rates

New Rating Instruction


Chartered Surveyors Eddisons has been appointed rating agent to Cohens Chemist, one of Britain’s largest pharmacy chains, following selective negotiations.

The Eddisons rating team will provide advice on business rates issues for the firm’s property and asset portfolio, which comprises 150 branches across the UK, in high street locations and those attached to healthcare centres.

The portfolio also includes offices, warehouse/distribution facilities.

John Hayward, Head of Rating at Eddisons said: ‘With an established specialist team already advising healthcare providers, we look forward to using this unrivalled knowledge to deliver significant savings for Cohens.

‘Since the new Rating List took affect in April 2010, clients are looking to us to reduce their business rates liability, particularly in the current economic client where all costs are being scrutinised.’
