We Are Dublin Town
- Thu 16 January, 2014
The Valuation Office posted final Valuation Certificates to commercial ratepayers in Dublin City which all businesses should now have received. The new valuations came into effect from 1st January 2014 and will form the basis for commercial rates in 2014 and following years.
If you are not satisfied with the stated valuation of your property, you can appeal to the Commissioner of Valuation. Following an appeal, if still unhappy, you can appeal to the Valuation Tribunal and following that go to the High Court on a point of law. Appeals to the Commissioner of Valuation must be made between 31st December 2013 and 8th February 2014.
Details on how to make an appeal are on the Valuation Office websitewww.valoff.ie, the website also has further information about the revaluation process. You can email the Valuations Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01 8171001 between 9:30 am and 5:30 pm Monday to Friday.
Dublin City Council at their Annual Budget meeting last night struck their new Annual Rate on Valuation (ARV). The new ARV for 2014 is .257. This means that to calculate the total rates payable for your premises multiply the Valuation Amount shown on your Valuation Certificate by .257. For example a Valuation of €5,000 multiplied by .257 equates to annual rates of €1,285.
