Purpose: to recommend the Council Tax base to Council.
Cabinet considered the head of finance’s report on the council tax base for 2016/17. Before the council tax could be set by the council, a calculation had to be made of the council tax base, which was an estimate of the taxable resources for the district as a whole and for each parish area. Cabinet was invited to consider the report and recommend the council tax base to Council. Cabinet agreed to recommend these to Council for adoption.
RECOMMENDED: to Council
(a) that the report of the head of finance for the calculation of the council’s tax base and the calculation of the tax base for each parish area for 2016/17 be approved;
(b) that, in accordance with The Local Authorities (Calculation of Council Tax Base) (England) Regulations 2012, the amount calculated by South Oxfordshire District Council as its council tax base for the year 2016/17 be 54,965.0; and
(c) that, in accordance with The Local Authorities (Calculation of Council Tax Base) (England) Regulations 2012, the amount calculated by South Oxfordshire District Council as the council tax base for the year 2016/17 for each parish be the amount shown against the name of that parish in Appendix 1 of the report of the head of finance to Cabinet on 3 December 2015.
