Bolton-based Cohens Chemist has appointed surveyor Eddisons as rating agent for 150 branches.
The Eddisons rating team will provide advice on business rates issues for the firm's property and asset portfolio, including high street and healthcare centre locations. The portfolio also includes offices and warehouse 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 climate where all costs are being scrutinised."
