For general information, contact details, relevant forms and information on how to Pay your Council Tax.
Council Tax is a tax based on property but with a personal element. Properties are placed in one of eight Valuation Bands which decides the level of tax payable, but this can be reduced depending on whether a discount or exemption is applicable.
Annual Council Tax bills are issued at the end of March each year, in respect of the amount due for the year commencing on 1 April. Where the liability for Council Tax does not cover a full financial year, for example, where a person moves into a property during the year, the amount of tax payable will be adjusted on a daily basis, by dividing the yearly amount by 365 (or 366) and multiplying the result by the number of days of liability in the financial year.
