Council tax bands and rateable values
The Valuation Office Agency (not the council) allocates a valuation band to every home or a rateable value to every business or non-domestic property. The council uses the banding or the rateable value to work out your bill. Your band or rateable value is shown on your bill.
 Checking your band
The band of your property will be shown onВ your council tax bill.В You can also view it online using the 'my account' facility.
You may check the band attached to any property via the council tax valuationВ list.В The council tax valuation list contains the banding for all homes and can be viewed on the Valuation Office Agency's websiteВ www.voa.gov.uk В (opens new window). You may also contact us .

Properties in mixed use, known as composite properties, will have a rateable value to reflect their non-domestic part, and a band to reflect their domestic part. Composite properties are liable to pay both taxes, albeit on different parts, and so appear on both the valuation and rating lists for the borough.
