Description

All data are based on the actual amounts billed to, and received from, Council Tax payers, and are net of all discounts (e.g. 25% single person discount) and exemptions. Surcharges are also excluded. The figures exclude Council Tax Benefit/Reduction; are before any amounts written off for bad or doubtful debt; and reflect any correction to liabilities made after billing.

The data are derived from the Scottish Government’s Council Tax Receipts Return (CTRR), which collects data from local authorities on the total amounts of Council Tax billed and the total amounts collected for all years from 1993-94 to date.

The CTRR data is collected after the end of the financial year, but before audit, and is therefore provisional. It has been approved by local authority directors of finance and follow accountancy standards where applicable. Final audited figures will be published by the Scottish Government later in the year.
