Non-Domestic Rates FAQs- Changes to Rateable Value

I think that my Rateable Value is too high? How can I appeal against it?

The Assessor is responsible for setting the Rateable Value which is placed on your property,  Any queries regarding valuation should be addressed to The Assessor and sent in writing to: Grampian Valuation Joint Board, 234 High Street Elgin IV30 1BA or e-mail them on:elgin@grampian-vjb.gov.uk.   Payment should not be withheld pending the settlement of an appeal. You should continue to pay the instalments listed on your bill.  If the appeal finds in your favour, you will be refunded any overpayment.  You can also request the overpayment to be transferred to credit another liability you may have with us.
Note: As a matter of course we will check to see if you have any other accounts outstanding to the Council. If you have we may take all or part of your refund to pay these accounts.

My Rateable Value has been amended by the Assessor. What happens now?

The Assessor informs us of the change by means of a weekly interface. This interface confirms the rateable value amendments, deletions and new properties which have been amended on the Valuation Roll. The Non Domestic records are then updated with this information and a revised rates bill notice will be issued to the ratepayer.  If any account becomes overpaid this will be refunded to the ratepayer.

Note: As a matter of course we will check to see if you have any other accounts outstanding to the Council. If you have we may take all or part of your refund to pay these accounts.
