Tailte Éireann (formerly the Valuation Office) is the Irish State's property valuation agency under the aegis of Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage . The core business of Tailte Éireann is the provision of accurate, up to date valuations of commercial and industrial properties to ratepayers and rating authorities as laid down by statute (principally the Valuation Act 2001). These valuations are integral to the business rating system in Ireland, and form the basis for a very significant element of local government revenue each year.
The Office also provides consultancy services to other Government Departments, Local Authorities, Health Boards and the Revenue Commissioners. For more information on Tailte Éireann, please visit their website at http://www.valoff.ie/en/
