About Your Council Tax Precept

Town council precepts
The town council is funded by part of the Council Tax known as a precept as well as by the income it generates.

How the precept is calculated
For more details on how the precept is calculated visit Braintree District Council’s website.
For the coming financial year 2023/2024, there will be an increase to the precept which will see residents pay the equivalent of an extra 18 pence a week for services in a Band D property.
