Welcome to the Valuation Office information page for Longford County Council Ratepayers. On this section of the website you can keep up to date with the Valuation Office activity being carried out in your Local Authority Area.
The revaluation of all commercial and industrial properties in the rating authority areas of Carlow, Kildare, Kilkenny, Leitrim, Longford, Offaly, Roscommon, Sligo, South Dublin and Westmeath County Councils has now been completed.
On the 7th September 2017 Valuation Certificates were issued to 29,067 ratepayers in these Local Authority areas.
Please be aware that the Valuation (NAV) on the Valuation Certificate received is not your rates liability.
Your rates liability for 2018 will be calculated by multiplying the Valuation of the property by the “Annual Rate on Valuation” (ARV) which will be set by Longford County Council at its budgetary meeting later this year. Indicative ARV can be found on your county councils website.
New Valuation Lists for the above counties will be published on 15th September and from that date the new valuations will be available to view here
A ratepayer who is dissatisfied with their valuation may make an appeal to the independent Valuation Tribunal as detailed in the explanatory letter issued with their Valuation Certificate. Appeals to the Valuation Tribunal must be made no later than 12th October 2017.
