Council Tax is a form of local taxation that helps pay for local services, such as parks, street cleaning and the police. It is charged on all domestic properties and the amount payable depends upon the value of the property. The value of your property determines which valuation band it is placed in.
You will receive your Council Tax bill at the end of March each year, or as soon as you tell us you move into a property.
