This is how we calculate your 2020 to 2021 Council Tax bill

We've based the figures below on a Band D property in Kirklees that has no parish precept to pay.

First let's look at the 2019 to 2020 figures

2019 to 2020 Council Tax
2019 to 2020 basic Council Tax rate + 2019 to 2020 Adult Social Care contribution = Total Council Tax for 2019 to 2020
£1403.23 + £106.33 = £1509.56

We can now use these figures to work out the Council Tax increase for 2020 to 2021.

1. General increase for 2020 to 2021

How we calculate the Council Tax general increase 2020 to 2021
Council Tax for 2019 to 2020 x General increase for 2019 to 2020 = Council Tax general increase for 2020 to 2021
£1509.56 x 1.99% = £30.05

Please note that the £30.05 figure has been rounded up due to calculating using 4 decimal places.

2. Basic amount for 2020 to 2021

How we calculate the basic Council Tax amount 2020 to 2021
Council Tax for 2019 to 2020 + Council Tax general increase for 2020 to 2021 - Adult Social Care contribution = 2020 to 2021 basic Council Tax
£1509.56 + £30.05 - £106.33 = £1433.28

3. Adult Social Care (ASC)

Contributions started in 2016/17 and increased year on year up to 2018 to 2019.

There is a requirement to have a separate line on the bill to show the amount of Council Tax which is dedicated to the provision of ASC services.

4. Final bill for 2020 to 2021

How we calculate the final Council Tax bill for 2020 to 2021 (not including parish precept)
2020 to 2021 basic Council Tax rate + Adult Social Care contribution for 2020 to 2021 + West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Authority contribution + West Yorkshire Police Authority contribution = 2020 to 2021 Council Tax bill
£1433.28 + £136.52 + £65.87 + £196.28 = £1831.95
