How my Bill is Calculated

Valuation Band

The amount of council tax that you pay will depend upon the valuation band your property has been placed in.
 
The valuation band of a property is determined by the Listing Officer of the Valuation Office Agency (VOA), which is part of the Inland Revenue. Valuation bands are based on property values on 1 April 1991, not what a property is worth today. A property falls within one of eight bands as follows:
 

Band A
Up to £40,000
Band B
Over £40,000 and up to £52,000
Band C
Over £52,000 and up to £68,000
Band D
Over £68,000 and up to £88,000
Band E
Over £88,000 and up to £120,000
Band F
Over £120,000 and up to £160,000
Band G
Over £160,000 and up to £320,000
Band H
Over £320,000


 
How do you find out what your valuation band is?
The valuation band of your property will be shown on the council tax bill sent to you. It is also shown in the Council Tax Valuation List.
You can search the list for your valuation band at the Valuation Office Agency’s website (you can access this website at the Council office reception).
 
What if my Valuation Band is wrong?
You can ask the VOA to check your Council Tax band if you think it’s wrong, but you should continue to pay your Council Tax bill while you do this. In some cases you can make a formal challenge against your banding, called a proposal.
Further information on appeals can be found here.
