Rateable values

The current rateable value of a non-domestic property is based on its annual open market rent on 1 April 2008.

Rateable values are determined by the Valuation Office, which is part of the Inland Revenue, and not by the Council. The Valuation Office for Neath Port Talbot is at Ty Nant, 180 High Street, Swansea (phone: 03000 505505).

All non-domestic properties in a local authority’s area and their rateable values are shown in a local Rating List. Revaluations of all non-domestic properties are carried out every five years, and a new local Rating List drawn up. Copies of the 1990, 1995, 2000, 2005, and 2010 Lists are held at the following locations and anyone can ask to look at them.

You can also look at the Rating Lists on-line at www.voa.gov.uk where you will also be able to see the summary valuation for all properties. You can check your rateable value and compare it with others on the Valuation Office Agency website, and you can also get in touch if you need to let them know of any issues.

You can find more information on rateable values on the Valuation Office Agency website at www.voa.gov.uk

The Valuation Officer may alter a property’s rateable value if they believe that there has been a change in circumstances (for example, an extension to a property or a single unit which is converted into two or more units). They may also alter the Rating List to include any new properties which are built. The occupier of the property and the local authority are told about any changes and the local authority then issues a rates bill to the ratepayer.
