667995_40766786Precept Increase: What does it mean?

You may have heard about the increase in the precept. We wanted to explain in more detail exactly what it means and how it affects you.

What is a precept?

A precept is a component of your council tax that is redistributed to other authorities.

In the case of Billingham, the tax you pay is split between Stockton Borough Council, Cleveland Police Authority, Cleveland Fire Authority and Billingham Town Council.

The amount you pay depends on the band that your property is assessed to be in.

Regardless of what band your property is in, the percentages that the council tax is distributed remains the same.
