Public Consultation on Local Property Tax Adjustment Factor

Under Section 20 of the Finance (Local Property Tax) Act 2012, as amended by Section 5 of the Finance (Local Property Tax) Act 2013, a local authority may as a reserved function resolve to vary the basic rate of the Local Property Tax within its functional area by a maximum of +/- 15%. This power will be available to local authorities effective from 2015, as the relevant sections of the Act came into operation on 1st July 2014. The regulations set out the process a local authority must undertake in order to vary the basic rate of the Local Property Tax within its functional area.

The Local Property Tax (Local Adjustment Factor) Regulations 2014 [PDF, 150KB] take account of relevant provisions in the Finance (Local Property Tax) Acts. The Regulations are set out in four Parts.

The requirements in respect of a public consultation process are set out in Part 3 of the Regulations.

Local Authorities are required to invite the views of the public in respect of the potential impacts of any variation in LPT rates on businesses, individuals and on local authority services. Accordingly Clare County Council invites submissions in relation to the setting of a Local Adjustment Factor. See Notice of Consideration of Setting a Local Adjustment Factor which details how submissions can be sent to Clare County Council and the closing date for receipt of submissions. Please note that this is a public consultation process and submissions may be published on this website.
