The Following information is Very Important to you if you recieved a Proposed Valuation Certificate in the last few days. The Valuation Office has begun issuing proposed valuation certificates to ratepayers in the Dublin City Council area. Ratepayers may fail to understand the serious consequences and negative impact that failure to act could have on the value of their businesses and properties.

The valuation is calculated by the Net Annual Value (NAV) multiplied by Annual Rate on Valuation (ARV) set by Dublin City Council. The proposed ARV rate set by Dublin City Council is .264

The turnover of a commercial business is not factored in to the revaluation process.

The valuation of the property is based on property rental rates on the 7th April 2011.

When the cert is received, you have 28 days to appeal the valuation.

Valuation appeals should be done through the website –

Any appeal may require valuation officer to visit a property and can result in increase, decrease or no change.

The decision of the Valuation Tribunal is final on the amount of the valuation. There is a further right of appeal to the High Court and ultimately the Supreme Court on a point of law.

Appeal considerations will be carried out from November 2011 – September 2013.

The final valuation list will be published on 31st December 2013 and will come in to effect in January 2014.

Failure to Act within the Time Limit of 28 Days will be deemed as acceptance of your revised Valuation - Act Now
