How my Bill is Calculated

Council Tax Banding

The amount of council tax that you have to pay is determined by the 'banding' that is allocated to your property. The banding is assessed by the district valuer, who is part of the Inland Revenue, and not by your local council. Each property falls within one of the eight bands as follows:-

Band and Property Values as at 1st April 1991

Band AUp to £40,000
Band BOver £40,000 and up to £52,000
Band COver £52,000 and up to £68,000
Band DOver £68,000 and up to £88,000
Band EOver £88,000 and up to £120,000
Band FOver £120,000 and up to £160,000
Band GOver £160,000 and up to £320,000
Band HOver £320,000

Once a band has been allocated any improvements and/or alterations made to the property will not alter the banding until the property is sold.
