About your Council Tax

What does council tax fund?

Council tax goes towards paying for our services including education and social services. We collect an additional charge made by the Greater London Authority.

We receive money from the Government and income from business rates. However, this is not enough to cover the cost of council services. The difference is made up by the council tax you pay.

The law relating to council tax is contained within the Local Government Finance Act 1992 and subsequent regulations.
