At the end of each Financial Year, Beverley Town Council (BTC) has to produce a projected budget for the following year. From this, BTC asks East Riding of Yorkshire Council (ERYC) to place a charge on every Council Tax payer within the four wards of Beverley.  This money covers the majority of BTC’s running costs and expenditure. It is called the Precept.  Residents can find the amount of Precept they pay on their Council Tax bill, which includes payments to ERYC (including Adult Social Care and Special Expenses), Humberside Fire & Rescue and the Police & Crime Commissioner.

The Precept for a Council Tax Band D Property in 2020/21 will be £46.88, a reduction of £1.00 (2.1%) based on the current financial year. The overall  Precept for the 2020/21 Financial Year has been set at £291,414.  This is a 1.6% overall decrease.

To provide context to this decision, in the 2019/20 Financial Year, the Precept was £296,106 with Band D properties paying £47.88.  In 2020/21, Councillors have resolved to use finances held in reserves to cover any resulting shortfalls due to the decrease.  Please note that the use of reserves is expected, but not definite, but has to be factored into potential spend at the start of the Financial Year.

The Beverley Town Council 2020 2021 precept sheet is a financial breakdown of the Precept, which also takes expected income into account. The anticipated reserves that might be used during 2020/21 are also detailed, but this could alter as needs change
