  • All figures are NET of discounts (eg single persons discount), exemptions and surcharges (although not all councils can exclude surcharges - see below). The figures are BEFORE any amounts written off for bad or doubtful debt. They reflect any correction to liabilities following billing.

  • Dumfries and Galloway has only provided figures from 1996-97 onwards
  • Surcharges: Councils are asked to exclude surcharges, although this is not always possible. For years prior to 1996-97, surcharges have been included for Aberdeenshire, Argyll and Bute, East Lothian, East Renfrewshire, Eilean Siar, Fife, North Ayrshire, Renfrewshire, Scottish Borders and Shetland Islands.
  • 2005-06 onwards - Figures include additional amounts in respect of reduced Second Home/Long Term Empty property discounts
