Council Tax bands and charges

The amount of Council Tax you pay depends on which band your property is in.

The total bill is made up of two elements – the Richmond element, which we set, and the Greater London Authority element, which is set by the GLA.

As part of the Provisional Local Government  Finance Settlement (LGFS) 2017/18 the Secretary of State offered local authorities with adult social care responsibilities the option of increasing Council Tax up to 4.99% for the next two years, consisting of up to 3.0% for the part of the overall change attributable to the adult social care precept, and up to 1.99% for the part attributable to general expenditure.  For 2017/18, Richmond Council opted to increase by 2.0% for  adult social care and 1.99% for general expenditure, making an overall increase of 3.99%.

Combining this with the increase in the Greater London Authority element of 1.46%, the overall Council Tax payable for 2017/18 has increased by 3.55%.
