 Councillor Richard Tonge presented a report which sought the Cabinet’s approval for the Council Tax Base, and asked the meeting to note information in relation to the collection rate.


In his presentation, Councillor Tonge reminded Cabinet that the Council is required to approve its Council Tax Base annually, in accordance with the Local Government Finance Act 1992 and The Local Authorities (Calculation of Council Tax Base) Regulations 1992; and that the Council Tax Base 2015/2016 has to be notified to Major (the Office of the Police & Crime Commissioner for Wiltshire & Swindon and Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service) and Local (Town and Parish Councils) Precepting Authorities by 31 January 2015. 




1.     To approve the Council Tax Base 2015/2016; and


2.     To note that the recommended overall collection rate remains at 99.50% which reflects current expectations for collection.


Reason for Decision: Before the Council Tax can be set by the Council in February 2015 a calculation has to be made and approved of the Council Tax Base, which is an annual requirement as laid out in the Local Government Act.
