VOA launches web service

17 August, 2016

Owners and managers of petrol stations can now register online for free with the Valuation Office Agency (VOA) to get a reminder email when their new draft rateable value is online.

The VOA is currently updating the rateable values of all non-domestic properties in England and Wales. These new rateable values are then used by local authorities to calculate business rates bills from next April.

Anyone who signs up will receive a reminder in the autumn, letting them know their draft rateable value online. The email reminder will also have a link for ratepayers to amend their property details online, if necessary.

Paul Phillips, Head of Revaluation at the VOA, said: “Once your new rateable value is live online, you can look it up and also get an estimate of what your bill may be in 2017-18. It really couldn’t be simpler – go online, register your email and wait for our reminder to land in your inbox.”

Petrol station owners can go to and sign up to the free reminder service.
