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 Provisional Local Government Finance Settlement 2019/20 the Secretary of State offered local authorities with adult social care responsibilities the option of increasing Council Tax by up to 2.99% plus a further increase of up to 3% which must be spent on protecting adult social care (provided such an increase does not exceed a total of 6% for adult social care over the three-year period to 2019/20).

For 2019/20, 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 8.93%, the overall Council Tax payable for 2019/20 has increased by 5.67%.
