Where your Council Tax goes

Council Tax requirement 2024 to 2025

In 2024 to 2025, the council plans to spend £242.1m (compared with £230.9m for 2023/24). After taking account of fees and charges, along with specific grants from Welsh Government or central government, the net budget is £179.7m.

The money required comes partly from Council Tax and partly through the Welsh Government as Revenue Support Grant and a contribution from the non-domestic rate pool.

The table below gives a breakdown of the increase in the 2024 to 2025 budget: -

  £ in millions
2023/24 Total Net Revenue Expenditure 170.8
Inflation and other committed changes 14.3
Service Growth 3.1
Service Area Savings - 4.1
Transfer (to) / from balances - 4.4
2024/25 Total Net Revenue Expenditure 179.7

Standard spending

The Standard Spending Assessment (SSA) is the Welsh Government’s assessment of the Isle of Anglesey’s need to spend in 2024 to 2025 to provide the same level of service as other Welsh unitary authorities if they also spend at the level of their SSAs. The SSA for this year is £176.5m and the net budget is, therefore, 101.8% of SSA.

Working balance

The council maintains balances to meet expenditure pending receipt of income and for any unexpected item of expenditure which may be of an emergency nature. It is anticipated that the council’s balances at 31 March 2024 will be £10m and £10m at 31 March 2025.

Capital budget - investing in the future

Not all council spending is on day-to-day services (revenue expenditure). Major projects, such as buying land, constructing or improving buildings and acquiring machinery and vehicles, are termed ‘capital’ expenditure. The Authority’s Capital Budget for 2024 to 2025 amounts to £13.8m (compared with £24.4m in 2023 to 2024).

How much you will pay

Each £1 of Council Tax levied by the council on Band D is estimated to provide £33,170.03.

The £1,572.30 levied by the council (for an equivalent Band ‘D’ property) will provide income of £52,153,328.

In addition to this, the Police and Crime Commissioner North Wales has set a Council Tax of £349.65 (Band D) to meet its expenditure and this will yield the sum of £11,597,901.

Council Tax set by each community council within the county will raise a further £1,994,795 details of which are given below which, on average, gives a further Council Tax (Band D) of £60.14.

The average Council Tax for a Band D property for the county in 2024/25 is, therefore:

£1,572.30 + £349.65 + £60.14 = £1,982.09 which is approximately £38.12 per week.

This is an increase of 8.59% on the average Council Tax that was payable for a Band D property in 2023/24. The increase in the county council element is 9.50% and 4.97% in the Police, and Crime Commissioner element.

Council Tax valuation bands

All domestic dwellings (houses, bungalows, flats and so on) will appear on the District Valuer’s valuation list.

Each dwelling is placed in one of nine bands according to its open market capital value as at 1 April 2004. This list became effective on 1 April 2005.

Your Council Tax bill shows the band for your dwelling.

Exempt dwellings

Your property might be exempt from Council Tax.


You may be entitled to a discount on your Council Tax.

People with disabilities

You may be entitled to a discount on your Council Tax if you have a disability.

Council Tax Reduction Scheme

The Isle of Anglesey County Council has a Council Tax Reduction Scheme. For those who are already receiving a Council Tax Reduction (in full or in part) or have made an application before the end of March 2024, they will be transferred automatically to the new reduction scheme. For new claimants, an application will have to be made for a reduction towards the Council Tax as follows: -

  • An online application.
  • Department for Work and Pension Local Authority Input Document (LAID) and Local Authority Customer Information (LACI), where they declare an intention to claim a Council Tax Reduction (for Housing Benefit claimants only. Does not apply to Universal Credit working age claimants).

Council Tax Discretionary Relief

The policy is intended to enable the council to provide relief to those in the most extreme financial hardship in respect of Council Tax costs.

Appeals regarding your band only

Details can be found in Your Council Tax.

Further detailed information is available from the Listing Officer, Tŷ Rhodfa, Tŷ Glas Road, Llanishen, Cardiff, CF14 5GR, or telephone 03000 505505, or email

Other Council Tax appeals

You may also appeal if you consider that you are not liable to pay Council Tax, for example, you are not the owner, or there is a mistake in calculating your bill. If you wish to appeal, you should first notify the council in writing. Further details on the appeal procedures (including the role of Valuation Tribunals) can be obtained from their website. Making an appeal does not allow you to with-hold payment of Council Tax owing in the meantime. If your appeal is successful, you will be entitled to a refund of any overpaid Council Tax.

Council Tax Premium

The council can charge a premium on the standard rate of Council Tax for long-term empty homes and second homes.

Non-domestic rates - Explanatory information

This information explains some of the terms which may be used on a non-domestic rate demand and in the supporting information. Further information about liability to non-domestic rates may be obtained from billing authorities.

Non-domestic rates

The non-domestic rates collected by billing authorities are paid into a central pool and redistributed to county and county borough councils and police and crime commissioners.

Your council and police and crime commissioner use their shares of redistributed rate income, together with income from their council taxpayers, revenue support grant provided by the Welsh Ministers and certain other sums, to pay for the services they provide.

Further information about the non-domestic rates system, including what reliefs are available, is on the Business Wales website.

Business (NDR) rate relief

Subsidy control

Relief from paying non-domestic rates could amount to a subsidy from public resources by a public authority. It is lawful where it is provided in accordance with the Subsidy Control Act 2022, S36, where the total amount of financial assistance is minimal, that is, £315,000 within a rolling period of three financial years, comprising the elapsed part of the current financial year and the two financial years immediately preceding the current financial year.

If you are receiving, or have received, any subsidy granted during the current or two previous years (from any source), you should inform the billing authority immediately with details of the subsidy received. This is because the Authority is required to upload details where subsidies are greater than £100,000 to the Government’s subsidy database.
