Valuation Order for Dún Laoghaire - Rathdown Signed
Last updated at 15:14 on 15/10/2019
On 15th October 2019 the Commissioner of Valuation, John O’Sullivan, signed a Valuation Order for the rating authority area of Dún Laoghaire - Rathdown County Council.
The signing of the new Valuation Order follows the completion of a statutory consultation process between the Commissioner of Valuation, the Minister for Housing, Planning and Local Government and Dún Laoghaire – Rathdown County Council.
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 2020 and become effective for rates purposes from 2021 onwards.
