Council tax bands

The amount of council tax you pay relates to the valuation of your property. Each property has been valued by the Valuation Office Agency (VOA)  and placed in one of eight council tax bands. The bands are based on what a home might have sold for in April 1991, even if it was built recently.

Valuation band Range of (1991) values
A Up to £40,000
B £40,000 to £52,000
C £52,000 to £68,000
D £68,000 to £88,000
E £88,000 to £120,000
F £120,000 to £160,000
G £160,000 to £320,000
H More than £320,000
