Welcome to the Valuation Office information page for Louth 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.
On 6th October 2017 Valuation Orders were signed for the rating authority areas of Cavan, Fingal, Louth, Meath, Monaghan, Tipperary, Wexford and Wicklow County Councils.
A Revaluation Information Pack will shortly be issued to you. The enclosed Revaluation Information Form can be filled in by clicking ‘Submit Revaluation Information Form’ in the toolbar on the left of this page. You will be asked to log in using the Property Number and PIN Number printed on you form. Alternatively the paper form can be returned using the enclosed envelope.
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 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.
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 and become effective for rates purposes from 2020 onwards.
