Rates revaluation 2017 has now been completed
On 7 September 2017, Valuation Certificates were issued to 29,067 ratepayers in the rating authority areas of Carlow, Kildare, Kilkenny, Leitrim, Longford, Offaly, Roscommon, Sligo, South Dublin and Westmeath County Councils.
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 the relevant County Council at its budgetary meeting later this year. Indicative ARV can be found on your county council's website.
New Valuation Lists for the above counties will be published on 15 September and from that date the new valuations will be available to view here. The Valuation List will also be available for inspection in the Valuation Office, Block 2 Irish Life Centre, Abbey Street Lower, Dublin 1.
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 12 October 2017.
It is intended to hold walk-in clinics in each Local Authority area following the publication of the new Valuation Lists. Staff from the Valuation Office will be available to answer queries relating to the issue of Valuation Certificates. No appointment will be necessary. Ratepayers attending the clinics are asked to bring their Valuation Certificate along with them.
Details of dates and locations for these clinics will be available here once confirmed.
