Council Tax Bands

There are eight Council Tax bands for properties in Bury.

Council Tax bands are also known as valuation bands. Bands are set for each property by the Valuation Office Agency, based on the property sale value on 1st April 1991. The same valuation standard includes new properties and properties that have been converted for domestic use, by working out what the sale value would have been in 1991.

Visit GOV.UK to check your Council Tax band or to find out how Council Tax bands are assessed.

Empty Property Premium

An empty property premium means a higher rate of Council Tax for an empty property. An empty property is recognised as being empty and unfurnished for over two years.

Empty property premiums:

  • empty between 2 and 5 years is double the full Council Tax charge
  • empty between 5 and 10 years is three times the full Council Tax charge
  • empty for over 10 years is four times the full Council Tax charge.

Empty property premium charges are noted on your Council Tax bill as 100, 200 and 300 percent respectively.
