Local Government Act 2003

Section 60: Submission of proposed rating lists

101.Under sections 43(4) and 54(4) of the Local Government Finance Act 1988 the rate bill of a property is its rateable value multiplied by the national rate multiplier.

102.Every five years on 1 April all properties are re-valued by the valuation officers. Under the current legislation - sections 41(5) and 52(5) of the 1988 Act - the rating lists have to be published in draft 3 months before they come into force on 1 April. To give ratepayers more time to plan ahead to accommodate changes in their rateable values this section requires publication 6 months before.
