Revaluation is done to maintain fairness in the system by redistributing the total amount payable in business rates, reflecting changes in the property market. Revaluation does not raise extra revenue overall.

The Valuation Office Agency (VOA) uses a wide range of property information and rental and other evidence to compare values across similar types of properties in order to set the rateable value.
