Adult Social Care precept - percentage increase explanation

The Adult Social Care precept shown on your Council Tax bill for 2018-19 has increased by 3%. Find out more about this calculation.

On your Council Tax bill for 2018-19, the 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.

For 2018-2019, the Surrey County Council percentage increases of 3% and 3% respectively are a percentage of the 2017-18 combined total, not the individual elements (the figure shown in red on the table below).

The Surrey County Council's increase, in total, is 6%. The amount in pounds of these percentage increases is added to 2017-18's separate elements to create the charge for 2018-19.

As the increase for Surrey County Council is 6% and Guildford Borough Council and Surrey Police figures had a lower increase, the overall increase is 5.6% for 2018-19.

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.
