What we do

QV Australia is the leading provider of rating and taxation valuation services to the New South Wales Valuer General.

What is a rating value?

Rating valuations reflect the unimproved land value of a property, which are used by local government for the basis of assigning rates for the year ahead. They are made in accordance with the requirements of the New South Wales Valuation of Land Act 1916, requiring our team of highly-skilled registered valuers to assess land values as at 1 July each year.

How it affects rates

Councils receive updated valuations on a cyclical basis, which they use as one of many factors to allocate rates. In addition, the Office of State Revenue will also receive updated valuations annually for all land tax liable land, which it will use for the assessment of land tax.

Landowners are advised of these valuations through a Notice of Valuation, which is issued by the Valuer General.
