Council Tax bands and parish charges

Council Tax bands

The market value of the property for which the bill is issued forms the basis of the charge payable. Dwellings are placed in one of eight valuation bands, the less expensive the property, the lower the band and therefore the lower the charge.

The Valuation Office Agency (VOA), an executive agency of HM Revenues and Customs, has given each property a valuation band between A and H according to its market value on 1 April 1991. Current market values may not be the best guide to the band your home is in.

If you are considering buying a property please remember that the band may be increased following the sale if the previous owner has improved the property.

You can find Council Tax bands by searching with the postcode on the GOV.UK website.
