Council tax - bands and charges

The amount of council tax you pay is based on the valuation band of your property. Your bill includes a charge for the service provided by Croydon Council and a separate charge for the GLA (Greater London Authority).

Council tax 2014/15

There has been a 0% increase in council tax this year. This, coupled with a 1.3% reduction in the amount the GLA charge, gives an overall decrease of 0.27%.

Council tax efficiency dividend 2014/15

We know that times are tough and that everyone is feeling the pinch. That’s why we’re giving bill payers this one-off efficiency dividend of £25, which has been possible through prudent management of council finances. ( If you have nothing to pay towards council tax e.g. you are receiving 100% exemption or council tax support, you will not receive a credit)

Payment of the council tax efficiency dividend has been made direct to council tax accounts and it will not be isued as a cheque or other payment to council tax payers.
