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.

In 2015/16 there is no change to our element of the Council Tax. The Greater London Authority element has reduced this year by 1.34%. There is an overall reduction in the Council Tax charge this year of 0.25%.

More about how Council Tax is calculated.

If you are late paying your Council Tax bill you may receive reminders and could receive a court summons if you don’t respond. A court summons will add additional cost to your bill.
