Where:     LV       =       Land Value

                                             CS       =       Comparable Sales

                                             CNI     =       Capitalized Net Income

                                             MV      =       Market Value per Tax Declaration

1.1       If all the factors for valuation are present, the land value shall be computed in accordance with the above formula.

1.2       Where CS could not be obtained and market value per mortgage (MVM) or Cost of Acquisition (CA) are not applicable, the formula to be used shall be:

LV = (CNI x .70) + (MV x .30)

1.3       Where CNI could not be obtained and only CS and MV are relevant/present, the formula to be used shall be:

LV = (CS x .55) + (MV x .45)

1.4       In case CNI and CS are not available, land valuation shall be based on the Market Value per tax declaration multiplied by 2. (MV x 2)

1.5       In all the above, the computed value using the formula or the Declared Value (DV), as defined in AO 17, whichever is lower, shall be adopted as the land value.

2.         Comparable Sales, Capitalized Net Income and Market Value per Tax Declaration are as defined in Section I (A-F of AO 17) except when modified/amended by this Circular.

3.         All valuation inputs, i.e. market value per tax declaration, comparable land transactions, acquisition cost, appraised value, landowner's offer and Listasaka value shall be adjusted to current values using the Regional Consumer Price Index (CPI).

4.         Whenever the cost of operations could not be obtained and verified, a 20% net income factor shall be used. A different net income factor may, however, be used for a particular crop as result of industry study which may be conducted as situations warrant.
