Concerns and Complaints

The Dunbartonshire and Argyll & Bute Valuation Joint Board hopes that your business with the Assessor and Electoral Registration Officer has been transacted in a polite and efficient manner, as well as in line with the law relating to these Local Government functions.

In the field of local taxation the Assessor cannot always bring about the outcome you would wish but the Dunbartonshire and Argyll & Bute Valuation Joint Board is concerned that your case should be dealt with knowledgeably, fairly, and above all, courteously.

From 1st April 2021 DABVJB have adopted the Scottish Public Services Ombudsman Model Complaints Handling Procedure (MCHP). The MCHP is split into five parts and these can be viewed below:
