Properties in bands E to H

The Scottish Government introduced legislation where there will be an increase in the level of Council Tax across Scotland for properties in bands E to H. There is no local discretion regarding these changes. The percentage change which applies to these bands is as follows and will be applied before the three percent increase.

You may be entitled to relief from the increase to properties banded E to H. The relief has been introduced to meet the changes made by Scottish Government and does not include the 3% increase across all bands. The relief can apply where you have less than £16,000 in savings and your income is below

  • £321 per week for a single adult with no children
  • £479 per week for all other households.

How much you pay depends on which band your house is in.

Scottish Water and water waste

Scottish Water's household water and water waste (sewerage) charges are increasing by 1.6%. You will see this increased charge on your Council Tax bill. This is because we collect these charges on behalf of Scottish Water.
