VOA ‘aggressively pursuing’ fines for hospitality, warns Colliers

It said the increased fines are being sought despite the fact that many of these businesses were closed during the pandemic, with no one in the office when the forms were issued

The government’s Valuation Office Agency (VOA) has reportedly accelerated its demands to hotel and pub businesses by issuing and “aggressively pursuing” an increasing number of fines for late Valuation Forms of Return, Colliers Business Rates Team has warned. 

It said the increased fines are being sought despite the fact that many of these businesses were closed during the pandemic, with no one in the office when the forms were issued, and that these businesses are now struggling to recover post-lockdown.
