Success Stories

This is what success looks like when you choose FCS

FCS is run by a dedicated and expert team who are always on hand to help you manage and save on your Empty Rates. Here are just a few of the many positive experiences our clients have had with us:


One of our clients who are a developer in London purchased a large office park for £35m with plans to transform it into residential homes. During the planning process the site was empty which meant they received rates bills for a harrowing £350,000 per annum. FCS took the site on and by ensuring the development was utilising all the exemptions and reliefs available, our client saved around 70% on Empty Rates during the period. FCS handled all the logistics and admin work to ensure the reliefs and exemptions so that our client could get on with what they do best and not have to deal with the headache and red tape.



A large commercial landlord with a varied portfolio of UK property owns an industrial site in Scotland, which until recently had a blue chip tenant in occupation for 30 years. Just 6 months after the tenant vacated, our client was faced with an Empty Rates bill of £178,000. The client reached out to FCS and we swept into action, putting the site on our portfolio immediately. By choosing FCS, our client made a saving of 83% on their annual liability with immediate effect. No more bills!


After a retail business in Stockport went into liquidation, the landlord was lumbered with an empty retail unit and a hefty Empty Rates bill. Once the Landlord contacted FCS and added the shop to our portfolio, he stopped receiving rates bills within 3 days. Our client currently saves 70% of the annual rates liability on his empty unit, leaving him to focus on looking for a new tenant.
