Council tax 2016/17

A guide to your council tax 2016/17

Council tax is a property-based tax payable on most domestic properties such as a house or flat but can include a houseboat, caravan or a granny annexe.

The council tax charge is set by local councillors and depends on how much money is needed to run local services and how much is given to the council by central government.

One bill is sent to each household in March detailing the council tax charge for the forthcoming year. The band of the property determines the level of tax each household pays.

How much will I pay?

There is an increase in Bromley’s part of the council tax of 1.99 percent.  In addition, the Government has allowed local Authorities to raise a precept of 2 percent to be spent on Adult Social Care.  There is a decrease of 6.44 percent in the GLA part.  This means there is an overall increase of 1.67 percent. (Due to decimal rounding this shows as 1.7 percent on your council tax bill).
