Revaluation 2023

The Valuation Office Agency (VOA) regularly reassess rateable values of business properties. This is called Revaluation - it is done to adjust the rateable values to reflect changes in the property market. The most recent came into effect from 1 April 2023.  From 1 April 2023, rateable values are based on the valuation date of 1 April 2021. 

Future revaluations will take place on a 3 year valuation cycle with the next Valuation List due to start on 1 April 2026.

You are now able to see the 2023 rateable value for your property at Find a business rates valuation and get an estimate of what your business rates bill may be.

If you feel your 2023 rateable value is wrong, you need to contact the VOA to:

  • CHECK - review and confirm the facts the VOA hold about your property.
  • CHALLENGE - once the facts are established, explain why you believe your valuation is wrong.

You cannot appeal your 2023 rateable value until you have completed CHECK and CHALLENGE.  You can find out more about how to Check and Challenge your rateable value by visiting Check and challenge your business rates valuation.

Transitional relief

For ratepayers with large increases in their business rates liability, following the 2023 revaluation, the Government has put in place a transitional relief scheme to limit and phase changes in business rates bills. Under the transitional scheme, limits continue to apply to yearly increases until the full amount is due (rateable value x the appropriate multiplier).

From the 1 April 2023 Transitional Relief will only apply where there's an increase in a rateable value.  If the rateable value is decreasing, the business will benefit from the full reduction straightaway from 1 April 2023.

Transitional arrangements are applied automatically and shown on the front of your bill. For further information, please see Transitional Arrangements.
