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. While 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.

The Scottish Parliament introduced legislation to change Council Tax from April 2017.

Council Tax is applied across a range of bands from A to H, with all bands having a relationship with band D, known as the multiplier. The national legislation has changed the council tax multipliers for properties in Bands E to H from 1 April 2017. There is no local discretion to change these multipliers.

The table below shows the current and revised multipliers for Band E to H and the percentage increase in charge. The table also shows what your current council tax is with the new multipliers applied. Scottish Water charges for water and wastewater will continue to be charged using the current multiplier and are excluded from this increase.

Band Current multiplier Revised multiplier: 1 April 2017 2016/17 Council Tax (current) 2016/17 Council Tax (with new multipliers applied) Percentage change
E 1.22 1.31 £1503.81 £1616.60 7.5%
F 1.44 1.63 £1777.23 £1999.38 12.5%
