London Borough of Harrow:

In General:
The London boroughs are administrative centres responsible for collecting local taxes (Council Tax and Business Rates) and then spending the funds received on local services. They are run by Borough Councils who are elected by borough residents on a four year cycle. The totals that they spend will depend on the rates of tax that they levy plus funds allocated from central government and other sources.

While many of the services (schools, roads, planning, rubbish collection and social services) are standard, levels of provision will vary according to the overall political will as expressed by the voters.

Your tax liability (as a resident) will be based on the council tax band of your home. These bands are set by Valuation Officers and there is scope for appeal. The rate bands are then used to determine the amounts of tax levied. So, while the bands will remain largely constant the levels of tax can go up and, in theory, down.

You may claim discounts or exemptions based on your circumstances. For example, as the only adult in a property you can get a 25% reduction on your bill. Other reductions are available for qualifying second adults and Council Tax Benefit claimants.

There is more information available at the HM Customs & Excise website.

London Borough of Harrow Comments

Famous for its school and seat of learning for the titled and well off, Harrow is firmly entrenched in middle class suburbia. A popular home for commuters who journey daily to the safe, respectable employment of the city and the civil service, the borough forms London's north west border with the home counties and Hertfordshire. Anonymous mid war suburbia sprawls across the south part of the borough around Harrow itself and in Wealdstone, Harrow Weald and South Harrow. Heading north, Pinner and Stanmore provide larger detached properties and more green open space.
