Commercial rates, which apply to all properties unless exempted, can be subject to revision (at individual property level) or revaluation (at county level). Revaluation, which is a reassessment of the rateable value of all properties in a Local Authority area, leads to a redistribution of the commercial rates burden between ratepayers. Such revaluations recur every 5 to 10 years. 

The revaluation of Co Clare properties will be completed as part of REVAL 2021, prior to which REVAL materials will be issued to all ratepayers. The entire process will lead to the production of a new Valuation List for Co Clare.

To enable Co Clare ratepayers understand and be ready for this process, Shannon Chamber has  invited Declan Lavelle, Head of Valuation Services in the Valuation Office to make a presentation on the role of the Valuation Office and the rates’ system. 

This event is a must for all ratepayers in Co Clare.
