Rateable Values

Printer-friendly page

The rateable values of all commercial properties are usually reassessed every five years by the Valuation Office Agency (VOA). The current revaluation came into effect on 1st April 2010. Historically this would have meant that the next revaluation would be implemented on 1st April 2015, however, the Government has announced that 2010 rating period has been extended until 31st March 2017. Revaluations are carried out by the Valuation to make sure that each ratepayer pays a fair contribution and no more, by ensuring that the share of the national rates bill paid by any one ratepayer reflects changes over time in the value of their property relative to others. Revaluation does not raise extra revenue for the Government.
