Time running out on return of forms

Local councillor, Bill Kennedy, has added his voice to the call to businesses to support the non-domestic revaluation.

Cllr. Kennedy said: “Final reminders have now issued to all businesses to get their Forms of Return in to Land and Property Services (LPS) for inclusion in the Revaluation. LPS are making one final push in August to maximise returns and I would encourage businesses to participate.”

Further details of the LPS Notice on the non-domestic revaluation can be found on Council’s website:http://www.ballymoney.gov.uk/news_article/1147.aspx

Land & Property Services (LPS) is reminding business ratepayers that time is running out to submit a Form of Return as part of the non-domestic revaluation project. Analysis of the evidence collected has started, so business ratepayers are being urged to submit the necessary information right away. Currently business rate bills are calculated using 2001 values, after the revaluation they will use 2013 values. Rates bills using the new valuations will be issued from April 2015.

Businesses should have received a paper form by post or visit the revaluation website www.reval2015ni.gov.uk to see which form you can use.
