Business rates in England, Scotland and Wales are about to be revalued. Your draft rateable value for 2017 and (for most properties) summary valuation is due to be published online on 30 September 2016 together with other information which the government hope will help you understand more about your valuation. The VOA or government will not be sending out printed valuations.
At revaluation, the government adjusts the value of the business rates to reflect changes in the property market and all properties are given a new rateable value. To make sure your valuations are accurate, you may need to give the Valuation Office Agency (VOA) or your assessor up-to-date rental evidence for your property at revaluation.
You can check your draft rateable value in October and let the VOA know if any information is incorrect before the local council uses it to calculate your bill.
Register your email address here to receive an email from the VOA when the draft valuation list is available online.
You will be able to review your draft valuation and tell the VOA if any details are incorrect, before your local council calculates your business rate bill from 1 April 2017.
