Non Domestic Rates – 2017 Revaluation Roll ‘Made up’


Scottish Assessors are responsible for revaluing all non-domestic property in Scotland - The last Revaluation was in 2010. A Revaluation is a regular reassessment of all non-domestic properties. It applies to all land and any buildings on those lands unless expressly exempted by law. Revaluation results in the production of a new Valuation Roll which contains revised values for all non-domestic properties in the Assessor’s area.  Draft 2017 values have been available for public view on the Scottish Assessors web site (www.saa.gov.uk) since December 2016 but as of 15th March 2017 the values were finalised and the Revaluation Roll was deemed to be ‘made up’Click here for further information >>>

Individual Electoral Registration Goes Live


The way people register to vote has changed.


Individual Electoral Registration


This is a new system of registration which has been introduced to ensure greater confidence as to the identity of electors and improved access to the registration process.


Individual registration will require each person to register themselves and to provide personal identifiers - date of birth and national insurance number. This will allow registration officers to cross check the information provided against national databases and other council records before a person is added to the register.


To register online under the new system

You need to provide a few more details to register – including your national insurance number and date of birth. This makes the electoral register more secure.

  • Visit www.gov.uk/register-to-vote.
  • Fill in your name, address, date of birth and other information. You’ll also need your National Insurance number, which can be found on your National Insurance card, or in official paperwork such as payslips, or letters about benefits or tax credits.
  • When your information is verified, we will send you an acknowledgment letter.
