Reval 2021

The Valuation Office is completing a national programme to revalue commercial premises. As part of this programme the Valuation Office is now engaging with the occupiers of commercial properties. We will use new valuations to calculate commercial rates from January 1st 2022.

What is Reval 2021?

Revaluation 2021 is a national programme. The aim of Revaluation 2021 is to ensure that the rateable valuation of all commercial and industrial property in Ireland reflects the current business environment. 

Revaluation will make the local authority rating system more transparent and fair. After revaluation there will be a closer and more uniform relationship between the annual rental values of commercial properties and their commercial rates liability.

The Valuation Office will publish the new valuations in September 2021. The new valuations will be effective for rates purposes from 2022 onwards.

Mixed properties are properties that have domestic and commercial uses. Mixed properties will only be assessed on the commercial element of the property.
