How much is my council tax?

  • How much you pay will depend on which valuation band your property is in and your personal circumstances.

Adult social care

For 2016-17, the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government made an offer to adult social care authorities. “Adult social care authorities” are local authorities which have functions under Part 1 of the Care Act 2014 (“adult social care functions”),  namely county councils in England; districts councils for an area in England for which there is no county council; London borough councils; the Common Council of the City of London; and the Council of the Isles of Scilly. For Worcester, the adult social care authority is Worcestershire County Council.
The offer was the option of an adult social care authority being able to increase its relevant basic amount of Council Tax for the financial year beginning in 2016 by an additional 2% without holding a referendum, to assist it in meeting expenditure on adult social care functions. Subject to the annual approval of the House of Commons, the Secretary of State intends to offer the option of setting this additional increase each year up to and including 2019-20. In relation to the financial year beginning in 2016 the Secretary of State has determined (and the House of Commons has approved) a referendum threshold of 4% (comprising 2% for expenditure on adult social care and 2% for other expenditure), for adult social care authorities. These authorities may therefore increase their relevant basic amount of Council Tax up to this percentage in 2016 without holding a referendum.
