Valuation Tribunal Service

Volume 450: debated on Monday 23 October 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what public sector bodies are part of the Valuation Tribunal Service's electronic data transfer initiatives; and what data are transferred as part of the initiative. (94637)

The Valuation Tribunal Service (VTS) shares electronic data with the Valuation Office Agency (VOA). The VOA transfer data relating to council tax and non domestic rating (business rates) appeals to relevant valuation tribunals. The information is exchanged when a formal appeal is being initiated and therefore details, such as the correspondence address, are required by the valuation tribunals. Valuation tribunals transmit listing dates and appeal status changes to the VOA.
