(1) All figures are NET of discounts (eg single persons discount), exemptions and surcharges. The figures exclude Council Tax Benefit and Water and Sewerage Charges. They are before any amounts written off for bad or doubtful debt and reflect any correction to liabilities following billing.

(2) 2005-06 onwards - Percentages received include additional amounts in respect of reduced Second Home/Long Term Empty property discounts.

(3) These councils have reported their collection rates on a "line by line" accounting basis. Earlier statistical collections did not ask councils for information on the accounting basis used.
