Helping you collect your Business Rates

We work with you to analyse your data against trusted external sources and provide a targeted report on businesses in your authority missing from your business rates register.

Whether it be through fraud or error, we will help identify gaps in the collection of non-domestic rates which will result in an improved rating list for your authority.

We help you find and retain money to fund your local services.


"GeoPlace delivered a report which our business rates team readily accepted. This helped us to confirm confidence in our register as well as find the "needles in the haystack" – properties which were missing from our records. We gave GeoPlace a brief to minimise the number of false-positives in the report – thus minimising the amount of resource required on our part – and GeoPlace delivered."
Simon Bleckly, Audit and Counter Fraud Manager, Salford City Council
