Revaluation Transitional Relief
If your daily gross rates liability has increased due to revaluation you may be eligible for transitional relief.
A Revaluation, where the values of all properties are reviewed, has been carried out with all values effective from 1 April 2023.
If you want to appeal against your rateable value or have any questions about it, please contact the Assessor for the Lothian Valuation Joint Board at www.saa.gov.uk
Increases in Rateable Value
Increases in rates liabilities due to revaluation will be capped, in cash terms, in 2023/24 at:
- 12.5% for small properties (rateable value up to £20,000)
- 25% for medium-sized properties (rateable value from £20,001 to £100,000), and
- 37.5% for large properties (rateable value over £100,000).
It is unlikely that this relief would be considered a subsidy as it is a general measure.
How to apply
An application for this relief is not required. If you are eligible for relief it will be awarded automatically and will be detailed on your rates bill.
