Business Rates Valuation
The valuation officer has to maintain the list and may alter the value if he or she believes that the circumstances of the property have changed. The ratepayer (and certain others who have an interest in the property) can also appeal against the value shown in the list if they believe it is wrong.
The effect of successful appeals against values shown in the rating list will normally be backdated to the beginning of the financial year in which they are made, although there are exceptions to this.
