Council tax bands and bills

What the bill is spent on

For information about how we spend your Council tax please download the Council tax booklet as a PDF.

Part of your Council tax also goes to the Greater London Authority. For more information please download Your Council tax and the Greater London Authority.

Your Council tax bill

To calculate your bill, the Valuation Office Agency decides the band your property is in. There are eight bands (A-H) depending on the property market value on 1 April 1991.

The band will determine how much Council tax you will have to pay and the full Council tax bill is based on two or more adults living in your property.

Bills are sent out every March.
