Notice of Indicative ARV for calculation of 2018 Commercial Rates

Indicative ARV for County Kildare for 2018 is 0.24

The Valuation Office is conducting a revaluation of all commercial properties throughout County Kildare to come into effect for the year 2018 as part of its ongoing programme to revalue all such properties within the State. The revaluation of all commercial and industrial properties in the Kildare County Council rating authority area has now reached the Proposed Valuation Certificate issue stage.

On 10th March 2017 Proposed Valuation Certificates were issued to ratepayers in Kildare. This Certificate states the "Proposed Valuation" (Net Annual Value) for each property.

The Proposed Valuation (Net Annual Value) of the property is multiplied by the “Annual Rate on Valuation” (ARV) to calculate the indicative amount of commercial rates payable for 2018. Ratepayers in County Kildare can calculate their estimated rates liability for 2018 by using the indicative ARV set out above.

The ARV is determined by the Kildare County Council as part of the budgetary process each year.


To calculate the indicative commercial rates liability for 2018 please multiply the “Proposed Valuation” (Net Annual Value), as advised by the Valuation Office, by 0.24.

(Example 1) - Peter O Brien (fictional business) - Proposed Valuation as advised = €15,790
Estimated Rates Liability for 2018 = €15,790 * 0.24 = €3,789.60

(Example 2) - Mary Murphy (fictional business) - Proposed Valuation as advised = €25,000
Estimated Rates Liability for 2018 = €25,000 * 0.24 = €6,000

Ratepayers who are satisfied with their proposed valuation do not have to respond to the Valuation Office.

Ratepayers who are dissatisfied with any material aspect of the Proposed Valuation Certificate may make representations to the valuation manager up to and including 18th April 2017. Final Valuation Certificates will be issued in September 2017 and will take effect from January 2018.

The Valuation Office website,, sets out detailed information about the revaluation and the representations process. The Valuation Office also has a dedicated Customer Support Team to deal with revaluation queries by email at, or by telephone at Lo-Call 1890 531 431 or 01 8171033 between 9:30am and 5:30pm from Monday to Friday, excluding public holidays.

It is important to have your Property Number and Pin Number, provided on the Proposed Valuation Certificate, available for all online queries.
