The amount of council tax you pay depends on the valuation of your property. Each property has been valued and placed in one of nine council tax bands by the Valuation Office Agency, which is part of the Inland Revenue.
The valuation banding is based on the market value of the property as at 1 April 2003. The charge for each band is calculated as a multiple of the band D amount.
New valuation bands for Wales are as follows:
|Band A||up to £44,000|
|Band B||£44,001 up to £65,000 |
|Band C||£65,001 up to £91,000 |
|Band D||£91,001 up to £123,000|
|Band E||£123,001 up to £162,000 |
|Band F||£162,001 up to £223,000|
|Band G||£223,001 up to £324,000 |
|Band H||£324,001 up to £424,000 |
|Band I||£424,001 and above|
How is my council tax calculated?
Your council tax bill is made up of 3 elements:
- Caerphilly County Borough Council precept
- Police and Crime Commissioner for Gwent precept
- Community council precept
The total amount council tax charged is the sum of the above 3 elements, although some areas do not have a community council in which case the charge will consist of the borough council and police authority precepts only.
