Valuation bands, set by the Valuation Office

The band for your property is shown on your council tax bill. You can also check your banding on GOV.UK: Find your council tax band (GOV.UK)

The Valuation Office allocates your home to one of eight bands according to its open market capital value on 1 April 1991.

If your property was built after 1 April 1991, it would be subject to the same valuation criteria and assessed using 1991 values. Please note: a change in the value of your house caused by general house prices going up or down will not be a reason for changing your council tax band

Valuation band ranges are as follows:

  • 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

You may be entitled to a discount. For example, as a single person, you are entitled to a 25% discount. More about the discounts and exemptions
