Your Council Tax bill 2017-18
During 2017/18 we will spend about £8 million providing services to you, the majority of which will come from Council Tax and Business Rates rather than the Government. This is because our government funding is being cut and will disappear completely by 2019/20 which means we need to save £1.4million a year by 2020.
The overall bill is made up of up to five separate parts. As well as us, you also pay Council Tax to Worcestershire County Council, West Mercia Police, Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue Authority and, if there is one in your area, a town or parish council.
Each organisation works out how much they need to raise from Council Tax to run their services, we’re then responsible for sending out bills to households and collecting the money.
Just nine pence in every pound you pay in Council Tax is kept by us, to run everything from rubbish collections to supporting the local economy.

Additional charge for Adult Social Care
This year adult social care authorities - in this area Worcestershire County Council - can increase their share of the Council Tax bill by an extra two per cent without holding a referendum. This is specifically to help fund the cost of adult social care and is on top of any increase, up to two per cent, introduced to fund the running of day-to-day services.
