Highland and Western Isles Valuation Joint Board
Tasks and responsibilities
The Highland and Western Isles Valuation Joint Board (VAL) is fully responsible for the administrative oversight of the Assessor and Electoral Registration Officer’s activities, in particular setting the annual budget. It does not have operational responsibility for the determination of valuations, bands or electoral registration. These operational matters are for the Assessor and Electoral Registration Officer to decide subject to the independent appeal procedures which exist for each area of activity.
