Rating Appeals

Non Domestic Rates can form a significant cost factor for any business and in Scotland, ratepayers normally only have a limited period in which to challenge the Rateable Value of their business premises after each five yearly Revaluation (normally 6 months).

A Revaluation was last carried out and took effect from 1st April 2010. All Revaluation Appeals normally had to be lodged prior to the end of September 2010.

How Non Domestic Rates are Charged

Non Domestic Rates for the year from 1st April 2010 were generally levied by multiplying your new Rateable Value by 40.7p plus a supplement of 0.7p for properties where the rateable value is greater than £35,000, from 1st April 2011 they were generally levied by multiplying your Rateable Value by 42.6p plus a supplement of 0.7p for properties where the rateable value is greater than £35,000 and fom 1st April 2012 they were generally levied by multiplying the Rateable Value by 45p plus a supplement of 0.8p for properties where the rateable value is greater than £35,000.
