Council tax bands and charges

About council tax bands

Your council tax bill will state the property's valuation band.

The Valuation Office Agency allocates the band: it will allocate your dwelling to one of eight bands according to its open market capital value at 1st April 1991 (see below).

If your property was built after this date, it would be subject to the same valuation criteria and assessed using 1991 values. Valuation band ranges are as follows:

Valuation bands

  • Band A: Up to and including £40,000
  • Band B: £40,001 to £52,000
  • Band C: £52,001 to £68,000
  • Band D: £68,001 to £88,000
  • Band E: £88,001 to £120,000
  • Band F: £120,001 to £160,000
  • Band G: £160,001 to £320,000
  • Band H: More than £320,000
