Areas covered

Please note there are no slides accompanying this recording. 

In December’s edition of Rating Talking Heads, we will be focusing on a general mixture of rating issues. Topics being covered will include:

Empty Rates

  • A change in the interpretation of Section 65(5) will alter the way empty rates are applied; we examine the issue and explore possible solutions.

Challenge Submissions

  • As we write more and more challenges we will identify good behaviours and best practices to give submissions the best chance of success.

New Protocols for the Government Gateway

  • Multi Factor Authentication (MFA) will be introduced from 01 December; we look at what MFA is and how this will affect rating practitioners that use the Gateway.

Tenants Fit

  • Mindful of ongoing litigation we will consider the current position and what may lie ahead
