Valuation bands and annual charges

Most dwellings are subject to Council Tax. There is one bill per dwelling. This is whether it it owned or rented, or:

  • a house;
  • a bungalow;
  • a flat;
  • a maisonette;
  • a mobile home;
  • a houseboat.

The District Valuer (the Listing Officer) allocates each dwelling one of eight bands. This is according to its open market capital value at 1 April 1991: The bands are as follows:

Band Minimum Maximum
A Up to £40,000
B £40,001 £52,000
C £52,001 £68,000
D £68,001 £88,000
E £88,001 £120,000
F £120,001 £160,000
G £160,001 £320,000
H £320,001 and above

The band, which applies to your dwelling, is shown on your Council Tax bill.

Find out your Council Tax band

Check your Council Tax band on GOV.UK.

Extending or improving your home

If you extend your home, or make other improvements, it will affect your banding. When one of the following occurs, it will affect your banding:

  • When you sell your property or transfer the lease. This is for a period or seven years or more.
  • There is a revaluation of all properties.

Consult Council tax band changes on GOV.UK for details of when your Council Tax band might change. This includes alterations and rebanding of similar properties in the area.

Appeal your Council Tax band on GOV.UK when you receive a letter from the Valuation Office Agency telling you about the change to your banding. You have six months in which you can appeal.
