Commercial Rates

If you’re a business operating from a commercial property, commercial rates can be one of your biggest expenses. An annual bill can be up to 20% of a business’s total property cost, but if you have a chance to reduce this rate, take it — that’s where we can step in.

Lisney was originally founded as a rating advisory company in 1934, so we’ve been reducing rates for Irish companies for nearly 90 years.

If you need a team to support you in representations and appeals to the Valuation Office, don’t look any further than the red and white Lisney sign. We’ll reduce the cost of you doing business.

First rate service nationwide

Irish companies fall under two rating systems. Under the older, more complex system, your rates can only be assessed if you considerably change the structure of your property. However, under the 2001 Valuation Act, business occupiers can make representations and appeal new valuations put on their properties. It’s vital to make your representation at that time, or the valuation stands for 10 years.
Whatever your company’s rating bracket, we’ll secure the best deal for you.
