Council tax bands and how they are calculated

Every domestic property has been allocated one of eight bands according to its estimated sale value on 1 April 1991. New properties are valued as if they had existed in 1991.

It is the responsibility of the listings officer to maintain the council tax bands. This officer works for the valuation officer (part of the Inland Revenue) and not the council. Please see the contact details below:

Address: Valuation Office Agency, Ley Court, Barnett Way, Gloucester GL4 7RT.
Telephone: 03000 501501.

If I disagree with my property's valuation band can I do something about it?

Yes you can, but you must do it within six months of occupation unless there has been a reduction in the value of the property.

This can be caused by the demolition of any part of the property, any change in its physical state, locality or any adaptation to make it suitable for use by physically disabled persons.

It is the responsibility of the listings officer to maintain the council tax bands. This officer works for the Valuation Office Agency and not the council.

The listings officer can amend a band in the following circumstances:

  • There has been a material increase in the dwellings value and a relevant transaction has subsequently been carried out.

  • There has been a reduction in the dwellings value.

  • The dwelling has become or ceased to be a mixture of domestic dwelling and non-domestic use.

  • To correct an error.

  • By order of a Valuation Tribunal or High Court.

If you disagree with the council tax band for your property, you should contact the Valuation Office Agency. You will be asked to explain the reasons why you think the list entry is wrong (for example you may feel that the property is in the wrong band because other similar properties in your street are in a lower band). The Valuation Office Agency may conduct a 'band review ' and will contact you as soon as possible to let you know the outcome.
