Check, Challenge or Appeal Against Rateable Value
What you need to do
- CLICK: www.gov.uk/voa/revaluation to view your draft rateable value.
- FIND: your property by postcode or address.
- REVIEW: the information to make sure all your property information held by the VOA is correct.
It will only take a few minutes to do this.
If you think the information held about your property is incorrect, ask the VOA to update your records.
This can be done at www.gov.uk/voa/revaluation.
If you do not do this, you risk paying too much in business rates.
Appeals against rateable values can be made free of charge and you do not have to be represented in discussions.
However, should you wish to be represented be aware that members of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors and the Institute of Revenues Rating and Valuation are qualified and regulated by rules of professional conduct designed to protect the public from misconduct.
Take great care if employing a rating adviser and, if necessary, seek further advice before entering into a contract.
Further information on how to appeal is available on the Valuation Office Agency's website.
