What is the Valuation Tribunal?

If you appeal against a Council Tax Support (Council Tax Reduction) decision in England or Wales, a Valuation Tribunal will deal with your appeal.

This guide goes through the process of what happens after your appeal is received.

To find out how to appeal, see Challenging a Council Tax Support decision.

Applies to: England and Wales.

In Scotland you need to contact your local authority for details of how your appeal will be dealt with.
The Valuation Tribunal for England and the Valuation Tribunal for Wales are independent and completely separate from your local authority. They provide local hearings for Council Tax Support (Council Tax Reduction) appeals and are completely free to use.

Usually, three members who are trained volunteers will hear your appeal, and a clerk, who is an employee of the Tribunal, will be there to advise about the procedure and law.

The hearings are meant to be as informal as possible, but because they are heard in public are structured and have some formality.
