Rates Relief

Last updated at 10:15 on 29/07/2021

On 7th January the Government announced that a commercial rates waiver will be applied, in the first quarter of 2021, to businesses most seriously affected by Covid-19 restrictions. The categories of business eligible for the waiver will be determined in line with Government decisions on level five restrictions. 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
