Adult social care
An adult social care (ASC) authority, like Derbyshire County Council, is able to charge an additional precept on its Council Tax to assist in meeting expenditure on adult social care.
The Secretary of State intends to offer the option of charging this precept at an appropriate level in each financial year up to and including 2019-20.
New rules governing the publication and breakdown of the precept information are now in place, as seen in the table below.
