In case you have noticed a 0.4% increase in your Council Tax
The Parish Council voted NOT to increase the council tax, however some may have noticed a 0.4% difference that is due to the Castlemorton Parish precept.
Angus inquired and this is the reason:-
Good afternoon Mr Goloightly
Further to our earlier telephone conversation I can confirm the increase of 0.4% is calculated as follows :-
292.53 (Band D equivalent) = annual Band D charge £13.67
(Band D equivalent
annual Band D charge £13.72
INCREASE £0.05 = 0.4%
The % difference is calculated £0.05 divided by £13.67 = 0.4%
The reason that the main preceptors ( County, Fire etc) show 0% is that we supply them with the tax base figures and they then set their precept from that figure.
I hope that this information is of help in explaining the small increase per household but please let me know if I can be of further help.
