What is council tax?

Each year the Government requires local authorities to raise money to help pay for the cost of providing local services. Some of this money comes from residents of the borough and is collected by the council in the form of council tax.

Within Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council's area there are over 46,000 dwellings, attracting a net income of over £53 million.  

We bill each dwelling for council tax, whether it is a house, bungalow, flat, maisonette, mobile home or house boat, and whether it is owned or rented. Unless full benefit or an exemption applies, council tax is payable on any domestic property.

Each property is allocated to one of eight bands according to its market value on 1 April 1991. Properties in band D will pay the basic charge and properties in other bands will be charged proportionately.

The banding is determined by the Valuation Office Agency and not by Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council. View bands and charges.
