Maths - Percentages Feature


You what?

There’s a typo in there.

Morning, Officer

eg using their figures, last year’s bill would be:


(£1808.96 total)

meaning that the overall rise is 3.25%, if it’s going up to £1867.82

Isn’t the “total” the overall increase you see in your bill for ctax for the year.
Like a 2.9% increase in Surrey County Council has a greater weighting than Police, as that’s a smaller amount. idurnkthismakessense

Well yeah, I don’t understand how the overall % number is higher than every single increase. I can’t be fucked to try and find last year’s bill.

I think the correct word is “math”.

Would you like to pay my council tax bill? Maybe just the police and crime commissioner?

Have they messed it up and it is something to do with the adult social care increase being a new thing that enables them to add 3% to the total

I don’t really care.

But good news. I called HMRC and I don’t have to pay that fine. :+1:

Only if you pay mine - I don’t know the amount yet, but it is Glasgow City Council and I get a single occupancy discount, but on the other hand my water bill is included. Could go either way who comes out best.

I don’t remember seeing that on there before so maybe…

I’m willing to take that bet.

They just said that so that they can fine you more for not paying the fine or maybe put you in prison.


Council tax increases has been capped for years except for if they hold an unwinnable referendum to raise it, adult social care is in crisis so central gov have allowed councils to add 3% specifically for asc

I don’t resent paying that but I would like a bit more clarity on my bill

Think before this precept came in Surrey were threatening to do a referendum on raising council tax, I would have voted for it

Although 3% of my total bill from last year would be in the £50s

Actually still not sure it make sense, 3 of the overall 5.5% is ASC leaving 2.5 for the other bits but all the other bits are over 2.5

Other day I considered starting a thread, what is your favoured way of working out a change in percentage, I go for 2nd number divided by the first then subtract one, my colleagues go for the difference between the two numbers divided by the first number, worried I may have been making a fundamental mistake for years
