Your Council Tax explained

Council Tax is paid by every eligible household in the country to your district or borough council.

This money is then distributed amongst your district or borough council, the county council, the Police and Crime Commissioner, and in some cases, your parish council.

What is the Adult Social Care Precept?

As part of the 2017-18 provisional settlement, local authorities responsible for adult social care are allowed an additional 3% on the current Council Tax referendum threshold. The Adult Social Care Precept has been calculated by applying a 3% increase to the current average Band D total Council Tax rate. 

The table below provides a further breakdown of the cumulative Adult Social Care Precept.
