Rateable Value

March 7th, 2017

Section 56 of the Local Government Finance Act 1988 (“LGFA 1988”) incorporates Schedule 6 to LGFA 1988. Schedule 6 sets out the statutory basis on which the rateable value of a non-domestic hereditament is determined.  It sets out statutory assumptions for determining rateable value. What is required is an assessment of “the rent at which it is estimated the hereditament might reasonably be expected to be let from year to year”. The hereditament means the hereditament, as a whole, not part or most of it.  So emphasized in Hobbs v Gidman (VO) , (2017) UKUT 63 (LC).
