Water and Waste Water Charges

Council Tax bills for properties connected to mains services include charges made by Scottish Water for domestic water and waste water services. Whilst we are required by law to include these charges in our bill, we are not responsible for setting the charges. If you have a query about water or waste water please contact Scottish Water.

Data Protection

We may use the information you provide and also the information we collect for Council Tax purposes to help us deliver other council services, if this would make those services more efficient or more effective. We may check the information you provide, or that another organisation provides about you, with other information we hold. We may also give information about you to, or receive it from, other council services or organisations to check the details we hold are accurate, to prevent or detect crime, to protect public funds or for any other legitimate purpose, all as allowed by law. These other organisations can include government departments, other local authorities and private companies. We will not, however, release information about you to anyone outside our own organisation unless the law allows it, and we will always use your personal information in line with the Data Protection Act 1998.

A list of Council Services which make use of information collected on Council Tax forms are:

This authority is required by law to protect the public funds it administers. It may share information provided to it with other bodies responsible for auditing or administering public funds, in order to prevent and detect fraud.

On behalf of the Auditor General for Scotland, Audit Scotland appoints the auditor to audit the accounts of this authority. It is also responsible for carrying out data matching exercises.

Data matching involves comparing computer records held by one body against other computer records held by the same or another body to see how far they match. This is usually personal information.

Computerised data matching allows potentially fraudulent claims and payments to be identified but the inclusion of personal data within a data matching exercise does not mean that any specific individual is under suspicion.

Where a match is found it indicates that there may be an inconsistency that requires further investigation. No assumption can be made as to whether there is fraud, error or other explanation until an investigation is carried out. The exercise can also help bodies to ensure that their records are up to date.

Audit Scotland currently requires us to participate in a data matching exercise to assist in the prevention and detection of fraud. We are required to provide particular sets of data to Audit Scotland for matching for each exercise, and these are set out in Audit Scotland's instructions, which can be found at:

The use of data by Audit Scotland in a data matching exercise is carried out with statutory authority, normally under its powers in Part 2A of the Public Finance and Accountability (Scotland) Act 2000. It does not require the consent of the individuals concerned under the Data Protection Act 1998.

Data matching by Audit Scotland is subject to a Code of Practice. This may also be found at:

For further information on Audit Scotland's legal powers and the reasons why it matches particular information, see the full text privacy notice at: or contact Revenues and Benefits, Business Hub 16, Aberdeen City Council, Marischal College, Broad Street, Aberdeen, AB10 1AB.
