The Valuation Agency (VOA) has published statistics on checks (England only), challenges and assessment (CCA) reviews against the 2017 local rating list at 31 March 2021.

The release includes statistics on challenges made by taxpayers (or their representatives) against the 2010 and 2017 local rating lists up to 31 March 2021. It also includes statistics on reviews of rating assessments (known as 'reports') that have either been initiated by the VOA or a billing authority, when new information becomes available.

The number of interested persons (IPs) and agents registering for Check, Challenge, Appeal reviews (CCA) has increased significantly. More than 90% of registrations are from interested persons rather than agents. Increases seen in March and April 2020 is a spike attributable to the COVID-19 pandemic.
