This week the Estates Gazette has commented that England’s Valuation Tribunal Service is to clamp down on Valuation Officers that do not disclose their evidence during business rate appeals. Rating professionals said that increasing numbers of appeals are progressing to Tribunal because the VOA was adopting a more confrontational approach and refusing to disclose the rental evidence it uses in determining valuations. It is hoped that there will be more obligation on the Valuation Office to disclose their reasons and the rental evidence they have used in putting their case forward.
