The Head of Financial and Customer Services presented the Council Tax Base report 2021/22 for Members’ consideration.  The Committee was advised that the report provided a technical calculation of the Council tax base, in line with Government legislation and national guidance.  The calculation took into account the potential for there to be up to two per cent non-payment of Council tax.  The anticipated reduction to the Council tax base was driven by the proposed changes to the Council Tax Support Scheme, as the Council was forecasting that less income would be received from Council tax as a result of changes to the scheme.




1)        the calculation of the Council’s Tax Base for the whole and parts of the area for 2021/22, be approved; and


2)        in accordance with the Local Authorities (Calculation of Tax Base) Regulations 1992, the figures calculated by the Redditch Borough Council as its tax base for the whole area for the year 2020/21 be 26,158.13 and for the parts of the area listed below be:


          Parish of Feckenham                           367.22

          Rest of Redditch                               25,790.91

          Total for Borough                            26,158.13
