Reval 2021 Valuation Orders Signed
Last updated at 13:39 on 04/11/2019
On 4th November 2019 the Commissioner of Valuation, John O’Sullivan, signed Valuation Orders for the rating authority areas of Clare, Donegal, Galway, Kerry and Mayo County Councils and Galway City Council.
The signing of the new Valuation Orders follows the completion of a statutory consultation process between the Commissioner of Valuation, the Minister for Housing, Planning and Local Government and the relevant Local Authorities.
The revaluation is part of an ongoing national programme to ensure that the rateable valuation of all commercial and industrial property in Ireland reflect the contemporary business environment. The purpose of revaluation is to bring increased transparency and more equity to the local authority rating system. Following revaluation, there is a much closer and uniform relationship between the current annual rental values of commercial properties and their commercial rates liability.
Neither residential property nor agricultural lands are rateable and consequently are not affected by the revaluation.
The new valuations for the areas undergoing revaluation will be published in 2021 and become effective for rates purposes from 2022 onwards.
