Appealing The Rateable Value

If you disagree with your 2017 rateable value

If you have reason to believe that your 2017 rateable value is not correct, follow the instructions provided on the site. You will need to do the following (not available until 1 April 2017):

  • Check - review and confirm the facts held by the Valuation Office Agency (VOA) about your property
  • Challenge – once the facts are established, explain why you believe your valuation is wrong.

An appeal on your 2017 rateable value is not possible, and may not be necessary, until you have completed check and challenge.


Our Business Rates leaflet gives more information on appeals in detail. Appeals are dealt with by the VOA and there are more details about how to appeal against your rateable value (including rateable values that applied prior to 1st April 2017).

The contact details for the VOA are:
