How much is council tax?

This year, we’ve agreed a safety-first Brexit budget. Read our 2019-20 annual report Safety-First Brexit Budget (1.3MB pdf).

Continued government austerity has reduced our funding by 59p in every pound since 2010.

Council tax will only rise in line with inflation by 2.7% and keep bills in H&F as the third lowest in the country.

The government’s adult social care precept will add a further 2% to bills – this will contribute extra funding for services for older and Disabled people.

The Greater London Authority (GLA) has increased it's share of council tax by 8.9 % and the additional income raised will fund the Metropolitan Police and the London Fire Brigade.

We work hard to ensure everyone pays their fair share of council tax – we strive to improve our collection rates each year. The rates are currently at 97.5% of the total owed.
