Bands and Charges

If you think you are in the wrong band you can appeal by contacting the Valuation Office Agency.

Appealing against your Council Tax Band

You can appeal against the council tax band that your property has been placed in on the following grounds:-

  • Where you believe that the banding should be changed because of an increase or reduction in the value of the property due to building work being carried out, for example, demolition or converting the property to flats
  • Where you start or stop using part of your dwelling to carry out a business, or the balance between domestic and business use changes

Where there are physical changes in the locality affecting the value; or within six months of the following:-

  • A band change to your property made by the Listing Officer;
  • A band change made to a similar property to yours made by the Valuation Tribunal;
  • Becoming a new taxpayer;

Reductions or increases in value resulting from the general state of the housing market do not affect the banding of your property.

Your appeal should be sent to:

Council Tax East
Valuation Office Agency
Kings Wharf
20-30 Kings Road

Tel:  03000 501 501

or alternatively you can appeal on-line by contacting the Valuation Office Agency

Please note that making an appeal does not give you the legal right to withhold payment of your Council Tax. Please continue to pay as you have been billed. If your appeal is successful any over-payment will be refunded to you.
