Council Tax Band E to H Reduction

Council Tax is applied across a range of bands from A to H, with all bands having a relationship with band D, known as the multiplier. The Scottish Government has legislated to increase the Council Tax multipliers for properties in band E to H from 1 April 2017.

Single person households with a net income of up to £16,750, and all other households with a net income of up to £25,000 and less than £16,000 in savings, will be protected from the increased charge caused by the band E to H multiplier change.

Those households affected by the change, and already in receipt of Council Tax Reduction, need not re-apply (since your Council Tax Reduction will automatically include any additional reduction you are entitled to).

However, if you are not currently in receipt of Council Tax Reduction and think this may apply to you, you can apply online.
