We are aware that a number of households in Cheltenham have received letters from companies offering to submit appeals against their council tax band.

These letters have not been sent on our behalf and the council has not been involved in this process.

Any council tax payer can contact the Valuation Office Agency direct on 03000 507 800 to make an appeal free of charge. It is not necessary to employ a professional company to do it on their behalf. 

Before providing any personal details or entering into an agreement, please ensure you are happy with the credentials of any company offering this kind of service.
