What your Council Tax is spent on

Council Tax

We set the amount of Council Tax you have to pay every year.

The Valuation Office Agency has put each property in England in one of eight  bands based on its price in 1 April 1991.

We set the amount you have to pay for each band.

We use your Council Tax to pay for many local services like emergency services, rubbish collection, libraries, schools, street lights and much more.

Some of the money goes to pay for the Greater London Authority (GLA) spending.

 

We calculate your Council Tax using the Valuation Office's bands and the GLA charges.

These figures don’t take account of any discounts, benefits, or other reductions you may be entitled to.
