Rates Relief

Last updated at 10:50 on 09/08/2022

 The Government announced on the 3rd of December 2021 that there will be an extension of the current targeted commercial rates waiver for the first three months of 2022.  

As was the case for quarter four 2021, this waiver will specifically target those businesses in the hospitality and entertainment sector who are impacted by continued restrictions. Businesses currently eligible for the waiver will continue to be eligible for the waiver for the first three months of 2022.  

Further information can be found on the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage website

The operation of this rates waiver scheme and any questions in relation to it are a matter in the first instance for the Rates Section of the Local Authority in which the property concerned is located. 

This measure does not affect the rateable valuation of a property as published on the relevant Valuation List maintained by the Valuation Office. The valuation of a property for rates purposes may be viewed in the ‘Check Property Valuation’ section of our website. 

Queries in regard to the valuation of a particular property can be sent to our helpdesk at valuationservices@valoff.ie
