Council Tax: 107,625 Edinburgh homes will pay increases of 11% - 26%

I list below the Council tax amounts to be paid from the beginning of April.

But first, a couple of reminders.  The increases can be found in my post on Saturday here.  Secondly if you are not sure of the Band of the house you live in you can find it at the Scottish Assessors Association website here.   The Scottish Government increases are to Bands E to H and are between 7.5% and 22.5%. Edinburgh Council has added a 3% increase to all eight bands.

First, the total amounts payable including water and sewerage charges and the amount of the increase. Note this includes the Water and Sewerage increase of 1.6% which is the rate of inflation (CPI) for 2016.

Band A:   £1089.75  (plus £27.90)
Band B:   £1271.38  (plus £32.56)
Band C:   £1453.00  (plus £36.20)
Band D:   £1634.63  (plus £41.85)
Band E:   £2108.25   (plus £160.19)
Band F:   £2578.53   (plus £276.86)
Band G:  £3075.57   (plus £420.94)
Band H:  £3810.09   (plus £625.53)

Now Council Tax on its own without water and sewerage charges:

Band 16-17 17-18 Increase (%age increase)
A £779.33         £802.71         £23.38 (3.0%)
B £909.22         £936.50         £27.28 (3.0% )
C £1,039.11     £1,070.28 £31.17 (3.0%)
D £1,169.00 £1,204.07 £35.07 (3.0%)
E £1,428.78 £1,582.01 £153.23 (10.7%)
F £1,688.56 £1,956.61 £268.05 (15.9%)
G £1,948.33 £2,357.97 £409.64 (21.0%)
H £2,338.00 £2,949.97       £611.97 (26.2%)

In the next few days I will follow up with the post number three in this series giving the political background. If you are not familiar with the discussions there will be a couple of surprises for you.
