Council Tax Bands and Charges

The Valuation Office places all properties into a valuation band. The amount of Council Tax you pay depends upon your property band

Council Tax Scams - Don't be a Victim

There are a number of Council Tax scams targeting the Bournemouth area recently. These are to do with Rebanding, Refunds and Payments.


Council Tax is made up of three parts (known as precepts):

  • fire
  • police
  • council.

The list below shows the amount of Council Tax you have to pay in 2018/19, depending upon your property valuation band. 

What is my valuation band?

Your Council Tax bill shows which band your property is in. You can also see Council Tax Bands for all domestic properties in Bournemouth (and the whole of England and Wales) as provided by the Valuation Office.


Disputing your Valuation Band

The Valuation Office Agency (VOA) decides the Council Tax Bands for all domestic properties in Bournemouth. You can ask them to check your Council Tax Band or challenge your Council Tax Band.
