2015/16 Council Tax Calculator (Beta)

Please provide the following pieces of information to help us give an indication of how much Council Tax you should be paying in 2015/16.

Which band has your property been allocated?

All homes in England and Scotland have been grouped into valuation bands based on an estimation of their value on April 1st, 1991 - even if they were not built then. If you don't know what band your property belongs to you can find out by clicking here. The higher the band, the higher the valuation and the more you pay!

Which community do you live in?

The slice of council tax money that is passed to your local town or parish council varies from community to community and so we need to know this before we can work out your total bill.

Are you the sole occupant of this property?

Council Tax bills are calculated based on the home being occupied by two or more adults sharing. Where a home is occupied by only one adult Councils apply a discount of 25%.
Tick the box if this applies to you.
