Laois Revaluation Now Under Way (December 2017)

On 22nd of December 2017 a Valuation Order was signed for the rating authority area of Laois 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 Laois County Council. The signing of the Order commences the Revaluation of all commercial and industrial properties within Laois County Council.

This revaluation is part of a national programme to modernise the rateable valuation of all commercial and industrial property in Ireland. The programme has already been completed in 15 rating authority areas and is currently underway in 8 new areas.. For more information on progress on the National Revaluation Programme please see map.

The revaluation will take account of contemporary rental values in your local authority area and will result in a more equitable distribution of commercial rates among ratepayers.

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.

The revaluation will not increase the overall total rates revenue raised by Laois County Council.

Part 5A of the Valuation Acts, 2001-2015 allows a revaluation to be conducted using elements of self-assessment known as “Occupier Assisted Valuation”. This is where the occupier of a commercial property is required to submit a valuation on their property for rating purposes to the Valuation Office.
