Final Valuation Certificates
The Valuation Office has now completed the revaluation of all commercial properties in County Wicklow and will begin issuing Final Valuation Certificates to all ratepayers from 10th September, 2019. The new valuations will take effect for rates purposes from 1st January, 2020. Please be aware that the Valuation (NAV) on the Final Valuation Certificate is NOT your rates liability but is a statement of the proposed valuation on which rates will be calculated from 1st January 2020.
The new Valuation List for Wicklow will be published on 17th September, 2019 and from that date will be available to view on the Valuation Office website www.valoff.ie .
Estimate of Rates Liability 2020
The amount of commercial rates payable in any year by a business is calculated by multiplying the valuation of the property, known as the Net Annual Value (NAV) by an Annual Rate on Valuation (ARV). The NAV provided by the Valuation Office and can be found on your Final Valuation Certificate. The ARV is set by the Local Authority and current indications are that the ARV for 2020 could be 0.228. Therefore, in order to calculate your likely rates liability for 2020 you should multiply the valuation by the Indicative ARV of 0.228.
Example: NAV on Final Valuation Certificate: €10,000
Indicative ARV: 0.228
Likely Rates for 2020: €10,000 x 0.228 = €2,280
Please note that the ARV of 0.228 is an indicative figure set by Wicklow County Council to provide ratepayers with an estimation of what their 2020 rates liability may be and could be subject to change during the Council Budget process in November 2019.
