Rates Revaluation Project
The revaluation of Cavan by Valuation Office is part of a national programme to modernise the rateable valuation of all commercial and industrial property in Ireland.
The programme has already been completed in the following rating authority areas: South Dublin, Fingal and Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Councils and in Dublin City Council, Waterford City and County Council, Limerick City and County Council; Carlow, Kilkenny, Kildare, Leitrim, Longford, Offaly, Roscommon, Sligo and Westmeath County Councils. In addition to Cavan, the programme is now being extended to the rating authority areas of the counties of Louth; Meath; Monaghan, Tipperary, Wexford and Wicklow.
The revaluation will take account of rental values in the rating authority area and will result in a more equitable distribution of commercial rates among ratepayers. A Valuation Manager will assess the value of each property and set a valuation in line with rental values in the rating authority area at the valuation date of 15th September 2017.
It is envisaged that the new valuations will be published in September 2019 and come into effect for rating purposes from 2020 onwards.
