Renfrewshire Council

Appealing business rates

Information about how to make an appeal

The Assessors (Renfrewshire Valuation Joint) compiles the Valuation Roll. The net annual value ascribed to each property is her estimate of the annual rent which the property could command. The rateable value is usually the same as the net annual value but may differ in some categories.

If you wish to appeal against the net annual value set for your property you should contact: Renfrewshire Valuation Joint Board, Robertson Centre, 16 Glasgow Road, Paisley PA1 3QF. Phone 0300 300 0150 (Monday to Thursday 8.45am to 4.45pm, Friday 8.45am to 3.55pm. More information is available on their website

New owners, tenants or occupiers may appeal within six months of acquiring an interest in a property. Where the Assessor alters the Valuation Roll, such as making a new entry or changing the value, the appeal must be lodged within six months of the date of the Valuation Notice. 

If you think your business rates have not been calculated properly you can appeal to Renfrewshire Council. Appeals should show that the rate set by the council has been incorrectly calculated or applied. Make your written appeal within 29 days of receiving your bill to the Director of Finance and Resources at the address shown on your bill.
