Valuation Order – Kerry County Council Rating Authority Order

The National Revaluation Programme



The commercial rates payable in any year is calculated by multiplying the Valuation of the property which is set by the Valuation Office  by the  Annual Rate on Valuation (ARV) which is set by the Local Authority.

Your Local Authority has provided an Indicative ARV based on the income levied by them in 2022.

This indicative rate calculator will calculate what your rates liability for 2022 would have been if that proposed valuation had been in place for 2022.

Your actual rates liability for 2024  will be  calculated by multiplying the Valuation of the property, set by the Valuation Office, by the Annual Rate on Valuation (ARV) which will be set by your Local Authority in Quarter 4 2023.
