The Council Tax Precept

The precept is the Parish Council’s share of the council tax and is used by the Council to run and provide its services.  The precept demand is calculated each year in the Autumn when the Council sets its budget for the following financial year. This is then sent to the billing authority, South Norfolk Council, which collects the tax on behalf of the Parish Council as part of residents Council Tax payments. 

The precept typically goes towards staffing, purchase of, and maintenance of parish assets, provision of services such as dog bins and supporting local groups or facilities via donations.

Parish and town councils can apply for other funding such as grant and funding awards, but they do not receive funds direct from central government as principal authorities do.
