Rates office urged to inform councils of new certificates

The rates valuation office is being urged to immediately inform local authorities of its revised valuations to businesses.

It’s emerged that businesses who successfully appealed their latest valuation have been issued with bills from Roscommon County Council based on the old rate. While companies have received the revised certificate, it’s emerged that the national office has not forwarded on the new details to the local authority.

Councillor Paschal Fitzmaurice is calling on the rates valuation office to take action as soon as possible.
