    Are You Being Visited By Land & Property Services?
    Now that the proposed revaluation of non-domestic  property scheduled for 2011 has been postponed until 2015, NIM believe that Land and Property Services will use the additional time gained to update rating valuations in the present list, to take account of alterations and extensions added over the past few years. A recent announcement disclosed that some 70 planning officers from DoE Planning Service have been transferred to LPS - this will obviously mean an increase in retrospective exami...

    NIM disappointed with Regulator’s Report
    The long-awaited Utility Regulator’s report into business electricity tariffs in Northern Ireland and how huge price increases were communicated to customers is insufficient in its scope and disappointing in its conclusions. Only 17 companies which had submitted written complaints about the rise in the energy bills were interviewed, which is simply not enough to gain a comprehensive assessment of the impact of the cost rises, which have taken such a toll on the manufacturing sector.Comment...
