Council Tax bands and charges

The amount of council tax you pay depends on the valuation band your home is placed in, which is based on your home’s value in 1991. Paying council tax is usually the responsibility of the homeowner or the person renting the property.

Valuation bands and charges

Every home is placed in one of the bands below. This is calculated by the Valuation Office Agency and is based on what your property was worth on 1 April 1991, not what it would be worth today.

The bands are:

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