What is my Council Tax band and how is this decided?

Bands are set by the Valuation Office Agency, which is part of HM Revenue & Customs. They can be contacted on 03000 501 501, or details of bandings are available on the Valuation Office Agency website www.voa.gov.uk You can use their online banding search to identify the banding for your property.

Properties have been allocated to one of eight bands according to their open market capital value as of 1st April 1991. Your Council Tax bill states which band applies to your property.
