Council tax banding
Who decides a property’s band?
Each dwelling is allocated one of eight bands (bands A to H) according to its estimated open market value on 1 April 1991. These bands are decided by the Valuation Office Agency.
The council tax charge is calculated using a band D equivalent and then charged in accordance with property bands that have been determined by the Valuation Office.
So a property in band A pays 6/9ths the amount for a band D property and so forth, as shown by the multiplier in the table below:
|Valuation band||Range of values||Multiplier||Valuation band||Range of values||Multiplier|
|A||Up to and including £40,000||6/9||E||£88,001 – £120,000||10/9|
|B||£40,001 – £52,000||7/9||F||£120,001 – £160,000||11/9|
|C||£52,001 – £68,000||8/9||G||£160,001 – £320,000||12/9|
|D||£68,001 – £88,000||9/9||H||More than £320,000||13/9|
