Rates Revaluation - 2017 Proposed Valuation Certificates.

National Revaluation Programme Update: Revaluation of commercial and industrial properties in Longford Roscommon and Westmeath nears completion Proposed Valuation Certificates posted today to Commercial and Industrial ratepayers in the Longford, Rocommon and Westmeath County Council rating authority areas Revaluation will improve equity, uniformity and transparency in local authority rating system READ MORE..

The purpose of a revaluation is to bring more equity, uniformity, fairness and transparency into the local authority rating system. Following revaluation there will be a much closer relationship between the rental value or valuation of a property and its commercial rates liability.

The new valuations will be published in September 2017 and come into effect for rating purposes from 2018.

On 12 January 2017 Proposed Valuation Certificates were issued to all ratepayers in Westmeath. An estimate of your rates liability for 2018 can be computed as follows:

  1. Take the value set out in the Proposed Valuation Certificate received from the Valuation Office e.g. €15,000.
  2. Take the indicative Annual Rate on Valuation (ARV) for 2018 of 0.2.
  3. Multiply A x B giving your estimated rates liability for 2018 e.g. €15,000 x 0.2 = €3,000.

It should be noted that the ARV is indicative only. It is based on the total value of proposed valuations for Westmeath as calculated and advised by the Valuation Office and is subject to change.
