Council tax banding and charges

Find out which council tax band your property is in and how much you have to pay. Information about what you can do if you want to appeal if you think your band is wrong or you don’t agree with your bill.

What are council tax valuation bands?

Domestic properties are put into one of eight bands (A-H) depending on the price they would have sold for in April 1991. Even if the property did not exist then, it is valued on what it would have been worth.

The council tax bill for your property is based on which property band your home is in.

I think my property is in the wrong Council Tax banding, what do I do?

Council Tax bands are set by the Valuation Office Agency (VOA). If you think your property is in the wrong Council Tax band, you can challenge your Council Tax band online at the GOV.UK (external website).

You'll need to tell them why you think your Council Tax band is wrong, for example, if similar houses in your street are in a different band.

There are companies offering to help people appeal against their banding in return for a fee. This isn’t illegal, but it's FREE to make an appeal and you can do it yourself.

Challenge my council tax banding

The VOA will change your band if they agree it's wrong. We'll then send you a new Council Tax bill for the new amount. Until then, you must keep paying the amount shown on your bill.

To challenge a VOA decision, you can appeal to the independent Valuation Tribunal (external website).
