Council Tax: The Valuation Office Agency

Valuation bands

What are valuation bands?

The valuation of dwellings is carried out by the Valuation Office Agency (VOA) and not by local councils.

Visit the VOA website

Each dwelling is allocated one of eight bands according to its open market value at 1st April 1991. The local council then issues a Council Tax bill based upon the band it has been advised to charge the property.

These bands are:

Band Range of value Band Range of value
A Up to £40,000 E £88,001-£120,000
B £40,001-£52,000 F £120,001-£160,000
C £52,001-£68,000 G £160,001-£320,000
D £68,001-£88,000 H More than £320,000
