Gowlands Secure Full Exemption From Business Rates For Northern Ireland Charity

Off the back of some of our recent work, we have a fantastic client success story we wanted to share with you. We have just achieved full Exemption from Business Rates for Hanna's Close; a charity set up to sustain traditional Irish cottages in the Mourne Mountains for generations to come and to fundraise and help with other local community initiatives.

The volunteers at Hanna's Close had tried since 2005 to secure full Exemption, but it wasn't until the team at Gowlands got involved that they could achieve their goal! We worked on this case for over two years and showed the dedication, professionalism and the delivery of results that we're proud of at Gowlands.

Of the support received from Gowlands, the Client said, "I just wanted to pass on my heartfelt thanks to you on behalf of the entire Board and Staff of Hanna's Close. The outcome today about the full Exemption from Rates has been the best news I have had since I joined the Board in 2014! It means so much for us, and everyone I have spoken to has been ecstatic and thankful to you for your support. Your tireless efforts have paid off with full Exemption, and effective date from April 2015 and our Charity can now continue to operate in a positive manner. 2020 has been a terrible year for us all, but this great result has just made us forget about the negatives."

At Gowlands, we support our Client's every step of the way, providing sector-leading advice and results. If you feel you or any other local business contacts would benefit from reviewing your Business Rates, please contact Gowlands today.

On your behalf, we take all the hard work out of the process and negotiate directly with Land & Property Services on a no-win-no-fee basis.
