Local Businesses Urged To Get Valuation

Dublin Fingal Chamber is recommending to all businesses who have received the new valuation certificates for their premises, to carefully consider the detailed report and to make representations to the Valuation Office on any aspect of the valuation they are unhappy with. All representations must be made by MondayJuly 13 otherwise the valuation will stand and will be issued as a final valuation certificate in December, when there will be an appeal period of 40 days. While over five thousand businesses have received their new valuation, there is still over seven hundred who have yet to receive theirs.They will be issued on September 11th. Chamber CEO Tony Lambert, said, “I would urge the many business people who have received their new valuation to make representations if they feel the valuation is too onerous.Remember this valuation will affect your bottom line for many years to come.Whilst some premises have had their valuation decreased, others have seen increases and there is great concern that the new valuations will lead to a loss of competitiveness between traders in the North County and those in Dublin City which will not be re-valued until 2014. If you have any worries, get advice from the experts.There are a number of Chamber Members who offer this advice and they are listed on our website”.
