The Valuation Office Agency places each property in a valuation band ranging from Band A to Band H. You can check your band or see below for more information.

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
