Council Tax: Valuation

Volume 461: debated on Monday 18 June 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales pursuant to the answer of 16 April 2007, Official Report, column 4W, on council tax: valuation, what change there was in council tax receipts as a result of revaluation (a) between 2004-05 and 2005-06 and (b) in subsequent years. (141649)

The revaluation and rebanding exercise was intended to be revenue-neutral. Year-to-year changes in the level of council tax receipts are the result of local authority budget decisions.

The increase in Band D council tax was 3.8 per cent. between 2004-05 and 2005-06; 4.5 per cent. between 2005-06 and 2006-07, and 4.4 per cent. between 2006-07 and 2007-08.
