What is my council tax band?


Your council tax band is, as we have already touched on, determined by several important factors. Location and value of property are the most important aspects of determining your council tax and while some may pay less council tax in the north of England for example, homeowners in the southern regions may pay more. 

Personal considerations are also part of the council tax calculating process. The number of residents in the property and their current employment status are taken into account. Students, registered disabled and those with other contributing factors may receive a discount or allowance when it comes to making their council tax payments. 

As the homeowner or tenant, you are responsible for making sure the council tax on the property is paid annually or monthly. You can do this by setting up a standing order or direct debit and in most local authority districts, there is a discount applied for paying by direct debit.

Generally the calculation of 12 months’ council tax is made so that the council tax is actually paid in full by the end of month 10 and the homeowner/tenant has a grace period of 2 months at the end of the financial year – February and March.
