Adult Social Care Precept (Derbyshire County Council)

The Secretary of State made an offer to adult social care authorities. ("Adult social care authorities" are local authorities which have functions under Part 1 of the Care Act 2014, namely county councils in England, district councils for an area in England for which there is no county council, London borough councils, the Common Council of the City of London and the Council of the Isles of Scilly.)

The offer was the option of an adult social care authority being able to charge an additional "precept" on its council tax without holding a referendum, to assist the authority in meeting its expenditure on adult social care from the financial year 2016-17. It was originally made in respect of the financial years up to and including 2019-20. If the Secretary of State chooses to renew this offer in respect of a particular financial year, this is subject to the approval of the House of Commons.

The income generated from this charge is ring-fenced, meaning it can only be used for adult social care services.

The Adult Social Care precept (£196.53 for Band D) combines the amount charged in 2023-24 (£166.97) and the 2024-25 increase of 2% (£29.56)

In order to calculate the 2% increase for adult social care, you have to look at the whole amount paid to Derbyshire County Council for 2023/24. This includes the general precept, and the Adult Social Care precept.

For example, a band D property in HPBC paid the below to DCC:

General Precept £1311.01
ASC Precept £166.97
Total £1477.98

2% of £1477.98 = £29.56

Add £29.56 to the £166.97  paid for 2023/24 gives you your 2024/25 Adult Social Care precept of £196.53
