Response three

Question 1

Please tell us which organisation you represent (providing this information is optional).



Question 2

How far in advance do you think the Scottish Tribunals should aim to publish hearing dates?


Min of 16 weeks

Question 3

If is not possible to publish the full detail of individual upcoming hearings far in advance, what detail about the hearings would be of most use, for instance: property type, area, etc.?


Entry full details; ideally in batches of similar entry type; appellant; if agent acting; Appeal type (R2023 or RR).

Question 4

Are there particular dates when you think that hearings should not be scheduled, for instance: days when Council Tax hearings in the same area are scheduled, particular dates in a revaluation cycle, etc.?


Yes, as stated plus during peak holiday periods.

Question 5

It is intended that the previous stakeholder group for the transfer of valuation appeal committees to Scottish Tribunals be reconvened to ensure ongoing dialogue with the Local Taxation Chamber President.  If you would like to join or to continue to be a member this group, please tell us here. 


Yes I would be interested in joining or continuing my membership of this group.

Question 6

Is there anything else you would like to tell us in relation to transferred non-domestic rates appeals?


Early indications are regional differeances in the processing of initial Proposals. So far all quiet from Assessors who have still to process all acknowledgements.
