Where can I find my Rateable Value?

The Valuation Office Agency (VOA) are responsible for creating and maintaining the list, which is available to view on the Valuation Office Agency website. You can also find your rateable value on the front of your business rates demand notice.

Your rateable value for period commencing 1 April 2017 is based on the open market rental value of the property as at April 2015. The valuation officer may alter your rateable value if there has been a change of circumstance. If you believe the rateable value of your property to be incorrect, you will need to contact the VOA. If they agree that your rateable value is wrong they will amend it.

Please note that throughout this process, you have to continue paying your business rates liability as charged.

Appeals

If you have contacted the VOA but have not been able to agree a change, you can make an appeal, free of charge to the Valuation Tribunal where you can also find more information about the process.

We can only backdate any business rates rebate to the date from which the change appears in the valuation list.
