Can I appeal against my property’sband?

The Valuation Office Agency (VOA) values domestic properties for Council Tax. This valuation is used to set your Council Tax band. You might need to contact the VOA if you think your Council Tax band is wrong. 

Find out more about when you can challenge your band and what you need to do

If you challenge your band, you must continue to pay Council Tax at your current band until your appeal is decided.

You can contact the VOA at GOV.UK. If you are unable to use the online service you can also contact the VOA on 03000 501 501.

You can make an appeal without instructing an agent or other organisation who may charge you a commission or fee.

Following the Chancellor’s announcement on 3 February 2022 that households in England in Council Tax bands A to D will receive a £150 rebate in April 2022, the Valuation Office Agency (VOA) has received an increased number of requests from customers asking how they can check and review their banding.

The VOA have set out the circumstances in which they will undertake a band review and the evidence customers need to provide.
