The amount of council tax you pay is calculated by taking the full charge for your property's band, minus any council tax benefit, discount, exemption or relief.
Find out which council tax band your property is in at the Scottish Assessors Association website. If you disagree with their decision you can lodge an appeal.
The full charge for each band is shown below. This does not include Scottish Water's water and sewerage charges.
|Band||Council tax (£)|
Help to pay
Households with income of up to £25,000 may not have to pay the increased charge, you can apply for help through the revised council tax reduction scheme.
If you are a low-income household and already receive a council tax reduction you do not need to re-apply. Your 2018/19 council tax notice will include any reduction you are entitled to.
How to pay
The easiest way to pay your council tax is in regular instalments by Direct Debit – you can pay monthly, fortnightly or weekly.
