Revaluation of Commercial Properties in the County of South Dublin

Revaluation of commercial and industrial properties in the County of South Dublin has been completed. Proposed Valuation Certificates have been issued to Commercial and Industrial ratepayers in South Dublin County Council rating authority areas. In accordance with Rates legislation this is the second revaluation to take place in the County, ten years after the last.

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 13th April 2017 Proposed Valuation Certificates were issued to all ratepayers in the County of South Dublin by the Valuation Office The indicative Annual Rate on Valuation (ARV) for 2018 is 0.28. If you haven’t received a proposed valuation certificate at this stage you should contact the Valuation Office immediately at Reval2017@valoff.ie or by telephone on 01-817 1033 or LoCall: 1890 531 431

An estimate of your rates liability for 2018 can be computed as follows:

  • A. Take the value set out in the Proposed Valuation Certificate received from the Valuation Office e.g. €15,000.
  • B. Take the indicative Annual Rate on Valuation (ARV) for 2018 of 0.28
  • C. Multiply A x B giving your estimated rates liability for 2018 e.g. €15,000 x 0.28 = €4,200.

Alternatively an estimate of your rates liability for 2018 can be computed using the calculator below and inputting the valuation set out in the Proposed Valuation Certificate to calculate next year’s indicative rate and also by inputting your rate bill for 2017 you will be able to calculate any difference in amounts payable.

It should be noted that the Annual Rate on Valuation is indicative only. It is based on the total value of proposed valuations for South County Dublin as calculated and advised by the Valuation Office and may be subject to change, at the conclusion of the revaluation process and at the Council’s budget meeting for 2018 scheduled for early November this year

If a ratepayer accepts that the valuation set out in the Proposed Valuation Certificate is correct, they do not need to respond to the Valuation Office. If a ratepayer is dissatisfied with his or her proposed valuation or any of the details contained in the Proposed Valuation Certificate he or she should make "representations" to the Valuation Office within 40 days of the date of issue of the said Certificate. If making representations, an occupier must provide clear reasons and supporting evidence to justify any proposed changes, including an alternative valuation. Ratepayers will also have the right to appeal their valuation subsequently to the Valuation Tribunal, an independent body set up for that purpose. Read More
