Revaluation will bring increased transparency and equity to local authority rating systems

Valuation Orders, which set in train the process for the revaluation of all commercial and industrial property in the Kildare, Leitrim, Longford, Offaly, Sligo, Westmeath rating authority areas, were signed on Monday the 23rd November 2015 by John O’Sullivan, Commissioner of Valuation. The revaluation will affect approximately 16,500 commercial and industrial ratepayers in these counties.

The revaluation is part of a national programme to modernise the rateable valuation of all commercial and industrial property in Ireland. The programme has already been completed in the South Dublin, Fingal and Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Councils and in Dublin City Council, Waterford City and County Council and Limerick City and County Council rating authority areas.

The signing of the new Valuation Orders follows the completion of a statutory consultation process between the Commissioner of Valuation, the Minister for Environment, Community and Local Government and the local authorities in question.

The purpose of revaluation is to bring increased transparency and more equity to the local authority rating system. Following revaluation, there will be a much closer and uniform relationship between the current annual rental values of commercial properties and their commercial rates liability.

Neither residential property nor agricultural lands are rateable and consequently are not affected by the revaluation.

The new valuations for the six areas undergoing revaluation will be published in 2017 (hence the “Revaluation 2017” project name) and become effective for rates purposes from 2018 onwards.
