This one day professional meeting is to be delivered virtually through ZOOM, by Gary Watson IRRV (Hons), Deputy Chief Executive, IRRV. It will look at the role played by the Council in the Valuation Tribunal and be of interest to practitioners working in council tax and / or non-domestic rate.

The meeting will cover the action that needs to be taken prior to, during and after a valuation tribunal hearing. In addition to covering the statutory provisions, the course will focus on the role played by the officer that represents the billing authority in the Valuation Tribunal. This will include what they should do in advance of the hearing as well on the day itself.

Delegates will be provided with a copy of the presentation in advance of the meeting. The morning will include workshops and exercises (when attendees will work together in break-out rooms) whilst the afternoon will be dedicated to running a mock hearing.
