*Adult and social care precept

The amount shown of £1,149.11 paid to Nottinghamshire County Council in 2023/4 includes the Adult Social Care Precept of £153.30.

The government has made an offer to adult social care authorities allowing them to charge an additional “precept” on Council Tax for financial years from the financial year beginning in 2016 without holding a referendum. This is to assist the authority (in our case Nottinghamshire County Council) in meeting expenditure on adult social care. The County Council has approved the implementation of a 2% Social Care Precept for 2023/24 to part fund increasing costs associated with adult social care.
