Valuation (Amendment) Act 2015

Last updated at 15:44 on 08/06/2015

The Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform, Brendan Howlin TD, has signed the Statutory Instrument which commences the provisions of the Valuation (Amendment) Act 2015, other than section 14, on Monday 8th June 2015.

The 2015 Act amends several provisions of the Valuation Act 2001, has introduced a number of important new provisions in its own right and has brought about major changes to the statutory code underpinning the assessment of commercial rates in Ireland. However, the 2001 Act remains in force and is the principal Act governing valuation law.

Please note that section 14 of the 2015 Act, which amends section 28(5) of the 2001 Act, has not been commenced and will be commenced separately at a future date to be determined.

Copies of the Statutory Instrument, the Valuation Act 2001, the Valuation (Amendment) Act 2015, the transitional provisions  and an “administrative working consolidation” of the valuation legislation, can be found on the Publications page.
