Council Tax bands & appeals

The Valuation Office Agency (VOA), not the Council, allocates every property one of eight bands based on its value on 1 April 1991. Even if you live in a new property the VOA will work out the band based on what the property value would have been in 1991.

Find your property's Council Tax band and annual charge:

  • Type your house number and street or postcode in the 'Postcode search' box and click Go
