What happens next

If the Valuation Office does not agree with your proposal, if you cannot agree an alternative alteration or, if no decision has been made at the end of three months, the Valuation Office must refer your proposal to a Valuation Tribunal as a formal appeal.

Making an appeal does not allow you to withhold payment of Business Rates in the meantime. If your appeal is successful, you will be entitled to a refund of any overpaid rates. In certain circumstances, you will be entitled to a prescribed amount of interest on the amount which has been overpaid.
