Adult Social Care precept - percentage increase explanation

Surrey County Council and Adult Social Care precept - percentage increase explanation.

On your Council Tax bill for 2019-20, Surrey County Council precept figure (the amount of money it raises through council tax) has been split into two - Surrey County Council and the Adult Social Care precept.

The Surrey County Council percentage increases of 3% and 0% respectively are a percentage of the 2018-19 combined total, not the individual elements (the figure shown in red on the table below).

The amount in pounds of these percentage increases is added to 2018-19's separate elements to create the charge for 2019-20.

The table below shows this (the percentages are rounded to two decimal places).

The calculation and percentage increase format shown on your Council Tax bill is set by legislation and Guildford Borough Council is not permitted to present it in any other way.

In the table shown, Band D figures have been used, but the same percentages apply to the other Council Tax bands. The table does not include any parish council charge which may also apply to your bill. This additional charge may affect the overall percentage increase.
