Council Tax bands and charges
The amount of Council Tax you pay depends on which band your property is in.
How your bill is calculated
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 Local Government Finance Settlement 2023/24 the Secretary of State offered local authorities with adult social care responsibilities the option of increasing Council Tax by up to 2.99% without the need for a referendum, plus a further increase of up to 2% which must be spent on protecting adult social care.
For 2023/24, we opted to increase by 2.0% for adult social care and 2.99% for general expenditure, making an overall increase of 4.99%.
Combining this with the increase in the Greater London Authority element of 9.7%, the overall Council Tax payable for 2023/24 has increased by 5.9%.

Council Tax bands are based on how much the properties would have sold for on 1 April 1991 as determined by the Valuation Office Agency.
