Answer:

For the current financial year, the members of Staffordshire County Council approved an increase of 4.99% at their meeting on 8 February 2024. This is made up of 2% for the adult social care precept and 2.99% for the general precept. 

The percentage increase is calculated on the total Band D rate for 2023/24, which was £1,471.23. The table below sets out the split between the ASC part of the council tax and the ‘general’ part. This table shows the increase more clearly than the regulated format of the bills.

ASC and general precept comparison
YearGeneral PreceptAdult Social Care PreceptTotal
2023/24 £1,277.90 £193.33 £1,471.23
2024/25 increase £43.99 £29.42 £73.41
2022/23 total £1,321.89 £222.75 £1,544.64

This is an increase of 2.99% on the 23/24 total Band D of £1,471.23. The total increase for this year is £73.41. 

The total Band D council tax rate for 2024/25 is £1,544.64 and this can be split into a ‘general’ amount of £1,321.89 and an adult social care precept of £222.75. 

These amounts are for Band D properties only, if your house is in a different banding then the amounts shown on your bill will be proportionately larger or smaller than this.
