Council Tax Collection Statistics 2010-11

These statistics were published in June 2011.

“This statistics publication notice provides Council Tax (CT) collection figures by Scottish Local Authorities for the financial year 2010-11 and previous years. The key points are:

  • In 2010-11 for Scotland as a whole, the total amount of Council Tax billed (excluding Council Tax Benefit) was £1.972 billion. Of this total, £1.867 billion was collected by 31 March 2011 (see table 1).
  • Between 1993-94 and 2010-11, the overall total amount of Council Tax billed in Scotland was £26.291 billion, of which £25.287 billion, or 96.2%, was collected by 31 March 2011 (see table 1).
  • The provisional Scotland total in-year CT collection rate for 2010-11 was 94.6%, a 0.2 percentage point increase on the audited figure from the previous year (see table 2).
  • Provisional in-year CT collection rates for 2010-11 ranged from 92.3 per cent to 97.6 per cent across the 32 local authorities.
  • These provisional figures suggest that 20 out of 32 councils have improved on their 2009-10 in-year CT collection rate figures published by Audit Scotland. Four councils showed the same collection rate. The remaining eight councils showed decreases, with five of these remaining above the Scotland average. Changes were all less than one percentage point with the exception of Dundee City which improved from 91.4% to 93.0%.
  • In-year collection rates have improved steadily from 87.2% in 1998-99 to 90.6% in 2001-02 and now 94.6% in 2010-11. This reflects improvements in the collection of CT in the billing year.”
