Appealing your valuation

This page has information about the rateable value of your business properties and how to appeal if you think the valuation is wrong. 

Valuating your property 

The Valuation Office Agency (VOA), an agency of HM Revenues and Customs, sets the rateable value of business premises by using property details such as rental information.

We use the rateable value and the business rates multiplier to calculate your business rates bill.

What is the rateable value? 

The rateable value is assessed by the Valuation Office Agency.

A property's rateable value is an assessment of the annual rent the property would cost if it was available to let on the open market on a fixed valuation date.

  • Until 31 March 2017, the rateable values will be based on a valuation date of 1 April 2008.
  • From 1 April 2017, the rateable values will be based on the valuation date of 1 April 2015.

Appealing your rateable value

If you think your rateable value is wrong, there is information on the governments website to help you find and view your property details.

This will give you advice and information about how you can check, challenge and appeal the process.
