Council tax band and appeals

​Who determines the band for each property

The Valuation Office Agency, a division of the Inland Revenue, is responsible for determining the valuation band for each property. In England, homes are put into one of eight valuation bands based on their capital value on 1 April 1991, not what the property is worth today. The range of values for each band are shown below:

Band Range of values at 1 April 1991
A Up to and including £40,000
B​ £40,001 - £52,000
C £52,001 - £68,000
D​ £68,001 - £88,000
E​ £88,001 - £120,000
F £120,001 - £160,000
G​ £160,001 - £320,000
H More than £320,000​

Your council tax bill will state the band which applies to your property. The amount of council tax payable is set by the City of London for each financial year.

If you cannot find your property on our revenues self service facility it may be because the property is new and has not yet been banded by the Valuation Office Agency.
