Bands and charges

Band reduction for disabilities

If someone who lives in a property has a disability, or the property has been modified to accommodate a disability, you may be entitled to have your tax band reduced:

How bands are calculated

The Valuation Office Agency places each property in a valuation band ranging from Band A to Band H.

The Council Tax is set for a property in 'Band D'. The Council Tax charge for properties in other bands is then a proportion of the band D charge, as follows:

Valuation Band A B C D E F G H
Proportion of band D figure 6:9 7:9 8:9 9:9 11:9 13:9 15:9 18:9

The Valuation Office Agency placed properties in a valuation band according to the price it would have fetched if sold on April 1, 1991.

  • Band A: Up to £40,000
  • Band B: £40,000 - 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: £320,001 and above
