Changes to your bill from April 2017

The Scottish Government has made changes to Council Tax arrangements from April 2017.

Charges for Band E and above will increase from April, resulting in monthly instalments increasing by £11 (Band E) to £51 (Band H) - unless you already receive a discount or reduction.  Although the Council decided not to increase Council Tax charges, they cannot amend the proportions set by the Scottish Government.

This table shows 10-monthly instalments for 2017/2018 proportions and charges for Bands E-H (including water and waste water charges). Your own instalment amount will show on your annual bill. Households in Bands E to H who have been affected by the increase in Council Tax charges with an income of up to £25,000 (for a couple) or £16,750 (single person) can apply for Council Tax Reduction.

Bands A-D proportions and Council Tax charges for 2017/2018 will not change.

Low income households

Households in Bands E-H, with an income of up to £25,000 (for a couple) or £16,750 (single person) can apply for Council Tax Reduction. If you already have Council Tax Reduction, it will automatically be increased to cover your new charges - you do not need to re-apply.

Any Council Tax Reduction you receive will show on your Council Tax bill. You can apply online for Council Tax Reduction.
