2020/21 Council Tax information

More than 7,200 households received Council Tax support last year amounting to £6.4m.

Police, fire and local Council services are paid for by Council Tax and government grants, and in some cases, through charges for services. Council Tax is based on property values and, in this area, is collected by Newark and Sherwood District Council on behalf of all four organisations mentioned below.

Council Tax payment is the responsibility of owner‐occupiers or, if rented, Council tenants, private tenants and tenants of housing associations. Council Tax is also due on unoccupied furnished and unfurnished houses in certain circumstances.

The amount of Council Tax for each household depends on the valuation band a property has been placed in by the Government’s Valuation Office Agency.

More than four out of every ten Council Tax payers in Newark and Sherwood live in Band A properties. Based on a Band A property, the following graphic and table show how much of your Council Tax goes to each authority.

*The Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government has made an offer to adult social care authorities. 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 2020‐21.

The County Council has approved the implementation of a 2% Social Care Precept for 2020/21 to part fund increasing costs associated with adult social care.
