Appeals - Business Rates

Please note that submitting an appeal does not allow you to withhold payments. However, if your appeal is successful you will be refunded any rates that have been overpaid.

Details about the appeals process in respect of Rateable Values that become effective from 1st April 2017 are available on the Business Rates Revaluation 2017 page.

If you want to enquire about about how your 2010 Rateable Value has been assessed please contact the Valuation Office Agency:

If you wish to appeal against the 2010 Rateable Value of your business, you should appeal to the Valuation Office Agency:

Appeals related to decisions or determinations that the Council have made are dealt with initially by the Council.

If you think that the Council has made an error either as to the facts or interpretation of the law you should contact us in order that the matter may be resolved.

If the matter cannot be resolved locally then it may be referred to the Valuation Tribunal for a decision or, if the case involves a point of law about recovery, to the Magistrates Court.

In both circumstances there is a further right of appeal to a higher Court.

You are strongly recommended to seek legal advice before any such appeal is contemplated.
