This is a new publication that combines two previous Valuation Office Agency (VOA) publications (‘Council Tax valuation lists: challenges (England and Wales)’ and ‘Council Tax valuation lists: changes’).
This release provides statistics on the challenges against entries in the Council Tax Valuation Lists for England (1993) and Wales (2005), including the reasons and outcomes of the challenges; it also provides statistics on changes to the Council Tax Valuation Lists. This is the first time the VOA has published information on the number of challenges received and the number outstanding.
Statistics are published at national, regional and local authority level.
The figures are derived from data for England and Wales, taken from the VOA’s administrative database as at 31 March 2015.
Counts are rounded to the nearest 10 with counts fewer than five but greater than zero reported as negligible and denoted by ‘-‘. Totals may not sum due to rounding.
For further details on the information included in this release, including a glossary of terms and a variable list for the CSV format files, please refer to the Data Information and Methodology note.
