Non Domestic Appeals
New owners, tenants or occupiers may appeal within 6 months of acquiring an interest in a property and where the Assessor alters the Valuation Roll (by making a new entry or changing the value) the appeal must be lodged within 6 months of the date of the Valuation Notice.
Appeals may be lodged at any time on the grounds of error or in the event of a material change of circumstances (MCC).(See menu item).
To lodge an appeal online use the Rateable Values search on the Grampian Home Page (use the Home link in the top line Menu above) to identify the individual property concerned. (Use the link in the More Information column on the Street Search Results page). Click on the “Make an Appeal” button at the right hand corner of the page to bring up the Online Valuation Roll Appeals page where the appeal form and further detailed guidance to help you through the process can be found. Details of the property you have identified will be completed automatically but you can overtype these fields if required.
You will receive an e-mailed acknowledgement (if you provide an e- mail address) that the Grampian Assessor has received your submission. The Assessor will subsequently write to you to confirm if your appeal is valid or if further information is required (eg evidence to confirm that a new occupier complies with the six month rule).
