Non-domestic Rates Revaluation Appeals Statistics

Published: 12 May 2016 09:30

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 Revaluation, as at 31 March 2016. 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 31 March 2016:

Revaluation appeals have been resolved for 66,630 properties, which is 99% of the 67,026 properties for which a revaluation appeal was lodged. This is similar to the rate at which revaluation appeals against the 2005 Revaluation were resolved (99%).

The original rateable value (RV) of the properties for which revaluation appeals have been resolved is £4,776 million, which represents 97% of the rateable values of properties for which a revaluation appeal was lodged (£4,946 million).

As a result of revaluation appeals, the rateable value of properties for which revaluation appeals have been resolved has reduced from approximately £4,776 million to £4,537 million, a drop of £239 million in rateable value (which equates to approximately £115 million billed in 2015-16).
