What is Council Tax ?
Council Tax, which replaced Community Charge (‘Poll Tax’) in 1993, is a local taxation charge that effects over 25 million properties across England and Wales so, whether you’re a landlord, owner or a renter, it’s something you usually can’t escape from for long.
Each individual property is charged an annual amount which is based on the value the property would be worth in April 1991 (2003 in Wales). Your own Local Authority will determine exactly how much Council Tax you will need to pay but they’re not always right and sometimes our expert help and specialist assistance is what’s needed to make sure that you’re not paying any more Council Tax than you need to.
