The accounting year of all councils starts on 1st April and finishes on 31st March. Local councils levy an annual Precept charge, which is collected by the District Council. The Precept helps run the services provided by the Parish Council.  Carbrooke's Precept request for the financial year 2021/22 is £36,000.

The Council Tax Precept


The Precept is the Parish Council’s share of the council tax.  The precept demand goes to the billing authority, Breckland District Council, which collects the tax for the Parish Council. The Precept is converted into an amount per Council Tax Band that is added onto the Council Tax bill.  Income and expenditure for the next financial year are calculated in the form of estimates.


Parish and town councils can apply for other funding such as grant and funding awards, but they do not receive funds direct from central government as principal authorities do.
