Our experience in the Telecoms sector goes back to the 1960s. In the mid-1980s when Mercury Communications (latterly Cable and Wireless) was issued with the first fixed lined telecommunications licence in competition to BT, we were instructed to handle their business rates issues as well.
Through the early 1990s, when the roll out of mobile base stations started in earnest, we started acquisition work for Orange and T-Mobile quickly followed by Vodafone and O2 and finally 3, when it was launched at the end of the decade.
Our team now provides clients with a full advisory service, including acquisition and planning services to satisfy the roll out and upgrade needs of network operators. We handle negations with landlords for rent reviews, lease renewals and forced site moves. We handle all cash transactions including making payments to and collecting refunds from landlords and billing authorities. We undertake full financial reporting through to full site by site profit and loss, balance sheet, pre-payment and accrual accounting.
