Valuation Orders, which set in train the process for the revaluation of all commercial and industrial property in the Cavan, Fingal, Louth, Meath, Monaghan, Tipperary, Wexford and Wicklow rating authority areas, were signed on Friday the 6th October 2017 by John O’Sullivan, Commissioner of Valuation.

The revaluation will affect approximately 30,000 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 Carlow, Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown, Fingal, Kildare, Kilkenny, Leitrim, Longford, Offaly, Roscommon, Sligo, South Dublin and Westmeath County Councils and in Dublin City Council, Waterford City and County Council and Limerick City and County Council rating authority areas. A second revaluation of the South Dublin county council rating authority area was completed in 2017.

Revaluation 2019 will result in the revaluation of commercial and industrial properties in Cavan, Louth, Meath, Monaghan, Tipperary, Wexford and Wicklow County Councils. The Fingal County Council Rating Authority area will undergo a second Revaluation having initially been the subject of a Revaluation in 2009.

The signing of the new Valuation Orders follows the completion of a statutory consultation process between the Commissioner of Valuation, the Minister for Housing, Planning 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 eight areas undergoing revaluation will be published in 2019 (hence the “Revaluation 2019” project name) and become effective for rates purposes from 2020 onwards.
