It means the rate for a Band A property will be £881.91, with Band B rising to £1028.90 and Band C going up to £1,175.89.

The tax for a Band E property will be £1,738.11, Band F will be £2,149.67 and Band G and H will rise to £2,590.62 and £3,241.03 respectively.

Rates do not include charges for water or waste water, which is collected alongside council tax on behalf of Scottish Water, nor do they take into account any council tax reduction, discount or exemption which may be due in individual cases.

Information can be found on Moray Council’s website on eligibility and how to apply for Council Tax Reduction, discount or exemption.
