(2) For the year beginning on 1st April 2014, that amount is calculated in accordance with the formula—

where—

  • J is the figure provided in column 3 of the table in Schedule 1 in relation to the designated area;

(2) That amount is the amount calculated in accordance with the formula—

(3) For the purposes of this paragraph, the rateable value of a hereditament shown in the relevant billing authority’s local list for 31st March in the preceding year is to be taken to be the rateable value that would have been shown in that list for that day had the circumstances relating to that hereditament been as they were on 1st April in the revaluation year.
