From 2019, the Victorian Government, via Valuer-General Victoria (VGV), re-values each property in Banyule annually.
Council uses the Capital Improved Value (CIV) supplied by VGV to apportion the amount of rates paid for each property. The CIV is the value of the land plus buildings and other improvements
After Council has determined how much rate revenue it needs to fund its budgeted expenditure for the financial year, it sets a rate in the dollar. The rate in the dollar is then multiplied by the CIV to calculate the rates payable for each property.
After each revaluation ratepayers may experience a different proportional change in their rates compared to ratepayers in other parts of the municipality. This occurs because changes in property values are not uniform across the whole municipality and will vary from area to area.
As rates are based on the CIV of a property, if changes such as erecting, extending, altering or demolishing buildings, or subdivision of the land are made, Council may decide to re-value your property. These Supplementary Valuations alter the CIV outside the annual revaluation process and result in the issuing of a new rates notice.
