How are properties banded?

We do not set the bands for council tax and do not value properties for council tax. The bands are set by central government and property values are calculated by the Valuation Office Agency which is part of HM Revenues and Customs. They place all homes in one of eight valuation bands, based on its estimated value on 1 April 1991. The fact that homes may be worth more or less now does not mean your banding is wrong. The banding date just establishes how much homes are worth in relation to similar properties in the area. The bandings are not affected by general trends in house prices.

Tax band per property value

  • Band A: £0 to £40,000 (6/9ths of Band D)
  • Band B: £40,001 to £52,000 (7/9ths of Band D)
  • Band C: £52,001 to £68,000 (8/9ths of Band D)
  • Band D: £68,001 - £88,000 (9/9ths of Band D)
  • Band E: £88,001 - £120,000 (11/9ths of Band D)
  • Band F: £120,001 - £160,000 (13/9ths of Band D)
  • Band G: £160,001 - £320,000 (15/9ths of Band D)
  • Band H: £320,001+ (18/9ths of Band D)

The amount of Council Tax for each valuation band is calculated as a proportion of the Band D charge. For example, the council tax payable for a dwelling in Band B is 7/9ths of the charge for a dwelling in Band D.
