A new non-domestic rating list comes into effect on 1 April 2023. You can still let the Valuation Office Agency (VOA) know if the information about your property on this list isn’t correct. But the closure of the 2017 list means that there are only limited circumstances in which further amendments may be made to it. These are when:

  • changes need to be made to the list following Checks submitted before 1 April 2023 (and any subsequent challenges and appeals);
  • the VOA is correcting inaccuracies on the list (this can be done up to 31 March 2024). If the list is changed then customers for those properties have the right to make a Check within six months of the change; and
  • a customer wants to challenge the 2017 list on the grounds of a tribunal or court decision. They can do this so long as a Check has been made by 30 September 2023.

There is a video covering the claims process on the GOV.UK website.

This explains how to make a formal claim and to ensure that any future assessment of rates for your business is set at the correct level.
