What the figures mean
The figures show the ‘tax base’, ‘parish precept’ and the amount payable (for a Band D property):
- the tax base – the number of properties (within that parish) for which Council Tax is payable
- Parish precept – the figure required to cover spending on service delivery within the parish
- Band D – the figure that each band D property will be charged (the band D figure is then used in further calculations to work out the charge for other bands)
The precept shown is the amount payable for a Band D property in addition to Norfolk County Council, Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Norfolk and Borough Council elements of your Council Tax. The actual precept for your property is shown on the front of your bill. This is included (if applicable) in your 2020/2021 Council Tax bill.
