Valuation Office Agency

The Valuation Office Agency (VOA) provides the government with valuations and property advice.

The VOA provides valuations and property advice to support taxation and benefits to the government and local authorities in England, Scotland and Wales.

It also provides valuation and surveying services to public sector bodies. This includes:

  • providing valuation and surveying services to more than 2,200 customers across the UK
  • public sector advising ministers on valuation, property matters and benefits


The VOA compiles and maintains details of the rateable value of 1.9 million commercial properties for business rates.

This online service enables businesses to check the ‘rateable value’ of properties, which is set by the VOA and used by local councils to calculate business rates bills.

You can also:

  • request changes to property or valuation details if you think they’re wrong
  • view the valuation details of other properties
  • challenge the rateable value if eligible
