Who sets Council Tax bands?
The Valuation Office Agency (VOA) sets all Council Tax valuation bands. They decide your band by considering the market value of your property.
Valuation bands in England and Scotland are based on property values on 1 April 1991, not what a property is worth today. More information on this is available on GOV.UK (link opens in new window).
||Market value at 1 April 1991
||Number of homes in Central Bedfordshire
||Proportion of Band D tax
||Up to and including £40,000
||£40,001 to £52,000
||£52,001 to £68,000
||£68,001 to £88,000
||£88,001 to £120,000
||£120,001 to £160,000
||£160,001 to £320,000
||More than £320,000
When we work out your Council Tax, we use the charge for a Band D property to calculate all the other charges.
