Mixed use properties

Properties in mixed use, known as composite properties, will have a rateable value to reflect their non-domestic part, and a band to reflect their domestic part. Composite properties are liable to pay both taxes, albeit on different parts, and so appear on both the valuation and rating list.

Appeal a tax band

The Council Tax Banding for your property is set by the Listing Officer of the Valuation Office Agency (VOA). The VOA is part of the Inland Revenue. They then tell us which band your property is in.

If you think the council tax band is wrong, you have six months to appeal. This is from the date you moved in to the property..

Even if you appeal you must continue to pay your council tax based on the current band of your property. If your appeal is successful, we will send you a refund for any overpayments you have made.

If you want to appeal you should contact:
