Dunlop Heywood secure significant rates win for Irish Football Association

A rateable value reduction has been secured for the National Football Stadium at Windsor Park, Northern Ireland, on the 2015 Valuation List following detailed discussions with Land & Property Services in Belfast.

Following the 2015 revaluation in Northern Ireland the Irish Football Association completed the redevelopment of Windsor Park.
Land & Property Services reviewed the existing valuation and increased it to net annual value £495,000.

That revision was appealed and following complex negotiations which reviewed the application of the Receipts & Expenditure and Contractors Basis rating valuation methods the assessment was reduced to net annual value £300,000 in advance of a further appeal to the Lands Tribunal NI.

Key achievements:
• A reduction in assessment of circa 40% backdated to 7th October 2016
• A substantial refund of rates overpaid
