Funding & Finance
HOW THE TOWN COUNCIL IS FUNDED
Unlike the District and County Councils – the Town Council does not receive any revenue support from central Government – nor from local businesses or retailers via their payment of non-domestic rate. Each year, the Town Council calculates the money it needs to raise to provide its services. Then we deduct the income which we expect to receive from fees and charges such as: hire of sports facilities; lettings of the various halls; burials and other services – to leave the amount we expect to spend on delivery and any capital projects which are planned for the year ahead.
This sum is called the PRECEPT – this is the amount we levy on the District Council which is then collected as a proportion of the Council Tax paid by Amersham households. In Amersham the precept has remained unchanged for many years at £519,621.
