These supporting materials were developed by the Highways Asset Management Financial Information Group to help authorities comply with the requirements of the Code of Practice on Local Authority Transport Infrastructure Assets (Transport Code).
Updated versions of the Valuation Variables Files for both the Structures Toolkit and the Valuation Toolkit have been published below. These files enable the toolkits to be populated with the latest variables (eg rates) correct as of 31 March 2018, and should be used to complete the 2017/18 valuations.
Please be aware that an updated version of the Structures Toolkit (version 307) has also been published below. This updated version includes the latest variables. If you have already populated the previous version 306 then this will give a correct valuation once updated with the current variables. However the detailed breakdown will show incorrect valuation dates. For consistency it is recommended that the updated version 307 of the toolkit is used.
