How much Council Tax will I have to pay?

Percentage change in your Council Tax bills

For Adult Social Care Authorities, Council Tax demand notices show 2 percentage changes - 1 for the part of the overall change attributable to the adult social care precept and 1 for the part attributable to general expenditure. This is in addition to the percentage changes for the other local precepts listed on the front of the bill.

The actual Council Tax increase for Wokingham Borough element is 2.99 percent for years 2018 to 2019 and 2019 to 2020. When rounded to 1 decimal point this appears at 3.0 percent on your Council Tax bill.

Adult Social Care precept (extra tax)

The Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government has made an offer to Adult Social Care authorities. ('Adult social care authorities' are local authorities which have functions under Part 1 of the Care Act 2014, namely county councils in England, district councils for an area in England for which there is no county council, London borough councils, the Common Council of the City of London and the Council of the Isles of Scilly.)

The offer is the option of an Adult Social Care authority being able to charge an additional 'precept' on its Council Tax for financial years from the financial year beginning in 2016 without holding a referendum, to assist the authority in meeting expenditure on adult social care. Subject to the annual approval of the House of Commons, the Secretary of State intends to offer the option of charging this 'precept' at an appropriate level in each financial year up to and including the financial year 2019 to 2020.

Parish precepts (extra taxes) and leaflets
