Minutes:

The Board considered a report of the Operational Director – Finance,  on the requirement for the Council to determine the Tax Base for its area and the Tax Base for each of the Parishes.

 

            The Board was advised that the Tax Base was the measure used for calculating Council Tax and was used by both the billing authority (the Council) and the major precepting authorities (Cheshire Fire Authority, Cheshire Police and Crime Commissioner and the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority), in the calculation of their Council Tax requirements.  It was arrived at in accordance with a prescribed formula which represented the estimated full year number of chargeable dwellings in the Borough expressed in terms of the equivalent Band ‘D’ dwellings. 

 

Taking account of all the relevant information and applying a 96% collection rate, the calculation for 2021/22 gave a base figure of 35,154 for the Borough as a whole.  The Council Tax Base figure for each of the Parishes was noted.

 

RESOLVED:  That Council be recommended to:

 

1)    set the Council Tax Base at 35,154 for the Borough and that the Cheshire Fire Authority, the Cheshire Police and Crime Commissioner, Liverpool City Region Combined Authority and the Environment Agency be so notified; and

 

2)    set the Council Tax Base for each of the Parishes as follows:
