AU WA A207 - VALUER GENERAL'S OFFICE OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA (1978-01-01 -)

Administrative history

The 1978 legislation provided for the establishment of a Valuer General's office. The latter's main objective is to provide a specialised valuation service for State Government agencies and local Government authorities. Prior to the Act taking effect the Commissioner of State Taxation supplied values to all local authorities except the City of Perth, the Metropolitan Water Board, and the Public Works Department. There was no legal hindrance to local authorities conducting their own valuation separate from the Commissioner for Taxation. A 'Valuation Bill' which provided for the establishment of an agency that would value and record all lands for 'the whole of the Taxing Authorities' of the state was passed by the Legislative Assembly but rejected by the Council, in 1913.

Between 1921 and 1970 many of the core functions of the Valuer Generals Office were performed by the Federal Taxation Department, following a State-Commonwealth agreement to that effect. In 1975 the 'Committee of Inquiry into Rates and Taxes attached to Land Valuation' saw the need for a central valuation authority which records and co-ordinates values and itself carries out valuations of property for all rating and taxation purposes. This committees recommendations formed the basis of the current legislation.
