The precept is the Parish Council's share of the council tax. The precept demand goes to the billing authority, the County Council, which collects the tax for the Parish Council. The 'Precept' is converted into an amount per Council Tax Band that is added onto the Council Tax bill.

Town Council income and expenditure for the next financial year are calculated in the form of estimates. The resulting net amount (the precept) is added to council tax, collected by the County Council (principal authority) and paid to the parish in two six-monthly instalments.

Parish and Town Councils can apply for other funding such as grant and funding awards, but they do not receive funds direct from central government, as principal authorities do.

BUDGET

The Town Council's budget is agreed each year in preparation for determining the following years Precept.

EXPENDITURE

Details of credit notes will also be published.

Salary payments to staff are not included, nor compensation payments made to individuals. Publication of certain other transactions may be redacted or be exempt from publication.
