Revaluation of Roscommon underway

Last updated at 14:12 on 27/01/2016

A Valuation Order, which sets in train the process for the revaluation of all commercial and industrial property in the Roscommon County Council rating authority area, was signed on Tuesday the 26th January 2016 by John O’Sullivan, Commissioner of Valuation.

The revaluation of Roscommon 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. In addition to Roscommmon, the programme is also currently underway in the Kildare, Leitrim, Longford, Offaly, Sligo, Westmeath rating authority areas.

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