Every business property that is subject to business rates is assigned a rateable value by the Valuation Officer. Although the rateable value is a key factor in the calculation of the rates bill it is not the rates bill.
The total rateable value for Business Rate properties in Eden District for the financial year 2013-2014 is estimated at £51 million, with rates being collected from an estimated 3,220 ratepayers.
Any queries regarding how your rateable value has been worked out should be addressed to the local valuation office at:
Contact: Valuation Officer

Or alternatively you can visit the Valuation Office Website, this site also gives details of how to make an appeal if you think your rateable value is incorrect.
