Answer:

The Adult Social Care precept was introduced by the Government in 2016/17 and in that particular year, the County Council was allowed to raise an additional 2% of council tax to fund adult social care.

For the current financial year, the Government allowed local authorities to raise up to 3% for adult social care and the Members of Staffordshire County Council approved this increase at their meeting on 15th February 2018.

These percentage increases are calculated on the total Band D rate for 2017/18, which was £1,142.54. 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.

 
  General Precept  Adult Social Care Precept Total 
2017/18  £1,088.93 £53.61 £1,142.54
2018/19 increases £33.70 £34.28 £67.98
2018/19 total £1,122.63 £87.89 £1,210.52
  This in an increase of 2.95% on the 17/18 total of Band D of £1,142.54 This is an increase of 3% on the 17/18 total of Band D of £1,142.54  

 

The total Band D council tax rate for 2018/19 is £1,210.52 and this can be split into a ‘general’ amount of £1,122.63 and an Adult Social Care precept of £87.89. 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.
