Non-domestic rates revaluation appeals statistics Scotland

An Official Statistics Publication for Scotland

Scotland’s Chief Statistician today published Non-domestic Rates Revaluation Appeal Statistics Scotland, 2013-14 Quarter 2. The publication provides statistics on the progress and results of revaluation appeals following the 2010 Revaluation as at 30 September 2013.

Key points (as at 30 September 2013):

Revaluation appeals have been resolved for 63,960 properties, which is 95% of the 67,022 properties for which a revaluation appeal was lodged. This is similar to the rate at which revaluation appeals against the 2005 Revaluation were resolved (96%).

The original rateable value (RV) of the properties for which revaluation appeals have been resolved is £3,966m, which represents 80% of the rateable values of properties for which a revaluation appeal was lodged (£4,947m).

As a result of revaluation appeals, the rateable value of properties for which revaluation appeals have been resolved has reduced from approximately £3,966m to £3,796m, a drop of £171m in rateable value (which equates to approx £79m billed in 2013-14).
