Council tax band valuations
Your council tax is based on the valuation band of your property. Each property is valued and placed in one of eight council tax bands by the Valuation Office Agency, part of HMRC. The bands are based on what a home might have sold for in April 1991. Even if the property you live in was built recently, its band is based on an estimation of what its value would have been in 1991.
We use the banding or the rateable value to work out your bill.
|Band||Market value of property on 1 April 1991|
|A||Up to £40,000|
|B||£40,001 to £52,000|
|C||£52,001 to £68,000|
|D||£68,001 to £88,000|
|E||£88,001 to £120,000|
|F||£120,001 to £160,000|
|G||£160,001 to £320,000|
|H||£320,001 and over|

* see adult social care and GLA precepts explanation below
Adult social care (ASC) precept
In 2015 the government created the adult social care (ASC) precept, which allowed councils who provide social care to adults to increase their share of council tax by up to an extra 2%. This precept was introduced by Hammersmith & Fulham on 1 April 2019.
The Government has said that this precept must be shown as a separate charge on all council tax bills. The income generated can only be used for adult social care services.
Greater London Authority (GLA) precept
The precept is the Mayor's part of the council tax, collected by London's boroughs and the Corporation of London. It helps pay for the services provided by the GLA Group and the running of City Hall.
