Rates Revaluation 2019

Rates Revaluation 2019

John O’Sullivan, Commissioner of Valuation, signed the Valuation Order for the rating authority area of Wicklow County Council on Friday 6th October, 2017, which signals the formal commencement of the revaluation of all commercial and industrial property in the County. The revaluation of Wicklow is part of a national programme to modernise the rateable valuation of all commercial and industrial property in Ireland.  The purpose of revaluation is to bring increased transparency and more equity to the local authority rating system. Following revaluation, there will be a much closer and uniform relationship between the current annual rental values of commercial properties and their commercial rates liability.

As a first step the Valuation Office will write to all owners/occupiers of rated properties per the Valuation Offices records who will now be required to complete and return a Revaluation Information Form. All queries should be referred directly to Valuation Office rather than to Wicklow County Council. The Revaluation Helpline may be contacted by telephone on 01 817 1033 or by emailing reval2019@valoff.ie
