Calculation for the percentage increase for the 2022/23 Council Tax

The council has increased the Council Tax charge for 2022-23 by 3.99%.

This is an increase of 1.99% on the standard Council charge and a 2.0% increase on the Adult Social Care (ASC) Precept charge which is used to help fund the rising cost of social care services for older and disabled adults.

How we calculate the increases

The standard Council charge and the ASC Precept make up the ‘Total Council Charge’. It is the overall charge that is used to work out both increases for 2022-23.

The Total Council Charge for 2021-22 was £1,494.72 for a Band D property.

The £1,494.72 was made up of the standard Council charge for 2021-22 of £1,340.19 plus an ASC Precept of £154.53.

Standard Council charge increase – 1.99%

Firstly, we multiply the Total Council Charge for 2021-22 by 1.99%.

£1,494.72 x 1.99% = £29.78

We then add that increase to the 2021-22 standard Council charge.

£1,340.19 + £29.78 = £1,369.97

ASC Precept charge increase – 2.0%

Firstly, we multiply the Total Council Tax Charge for 2021-22 by 2.0%

£1,494.72 x 2.0% = £29.89

We then add that increase to the 2021-22 ASC Precept charge

£154.53 + £29.89 = £184.42

Total Council charge for 2022 - 23

The Total Council charge for 2022 - 23 is the new standard council charge (£1,369.97) plus the new ASC Precept charge (£184.42) which equals £1,554.39.
