Valuation Tribunal for England LogoVTE

Valuation Tribunal for England

The VTE is the judicial arm of the Valuation Tribunal. In 2009 it replaced the 56 valuation tribunals that existed previously in England and a national President was appointed.

There are three Vice-Presidents. The President and the Vice-Presidents are all appointed by the Lord Chancellor and receive remuneration for the work they do.

The VTE chairmen and members are volunteers who receive training and are experienced in hearing appeals. They come from a wide cross section of society. They are not paid but they may claim expenses and, where necessary, earnings lost due to their tribunal duties.

Normally two members will hear an appeal, though any number may, provided it is on the direction of the President, and that at least one is the President, a Vice-President or a chairman.

The VTE is supported in its work by the Valuation Tribunal Service.
