Council tax

How we work out your bill

Your bill is based on what we know about the value of your home and any reduction you may get if you are personally entitled to Council Tax Support or a discount

We provide you with a bill that covers a financial year – that’s April to April – showing the amount you will need to pay in monthly instalments.

Your band and valuation

Every home in the borough is in one of eight valuation bands (A to H). This is based on the market value of your home in 1991. Your bill will show which band you’re in.
