Non-domestic Rates Revaluation Appeals Statistics, Scotland 2017-18, Quarter 1

An Official Statistics Publication for Scotland.

Scotland’s Chief Statistician today published the above statistics on the progress and results of revaluation appeals following the 2010 and 2017 Revaluations, as at 30 June 2017. The figures released today were produced by independent statistical staff free from any political interference, in accordance with professional standards set out in the Code of Practice for Official Statistics.

As at 30 June 2017:

 

As at 30th June, 2010 revaluation appeals had been resolved for over 99% of properties for which an appeal had been received (66,678 of 67,026).

The original rateable value (RV) of the properties for which revaluation appeals have been resolved is £4,811m, 97% of RV for properties who lodged a revaluation appeal.

As a result of revaluation appeals, the rateable value of properties whose appeal has been resolved has reduced by £242m, approximately £117m billed at 2016-17 poundage. Larger, more complex cases tend to be the appeals which are resolved latest.

To date £911m RV has been appealed against the 2017 revaluation, relating to 11,368 properties.  Appeals have already been resolved for 27 of these properties with a total reduction in RV of £13m.

Ratepayers will generally have until 30th September 2017 to lodge a revaluation appeal against their 2017 revaluation. More detail will follow on the progress of revaluation appeals lodged in the 2017 cycle in subsequent publications.
