The Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government has made an offer to adult social care authorities. (“Adult social care authorities” are local authorities which have functions under Part 1 of the Care Act 2014, namely county councils in England, district councils for an area in England for which there is no county council, London borough councils, the Common Council of the City of London and the Council of the Isles of Scilly).

The offer was the option of an adult social care authority being able to charge an additional "precept" on its council tax without holding a referendum, to assist the authority in meeting its expenditure on adult social care from the financial year 2016-17.

Regulations define any parish that issues a precept over £140,000 as a "relevant precepting authority". Any such parish is required to provide certain information about gross and net expenditure and the difference between current and previous years. As billing authority, Gedling Borough Council must then display that information within the financial information that accompanies the Council Tax bills. Gedling now publishes this on it's website rather than by sending a leaflet and information in respect of Burton Joyce and Calverton Parish Council is shown below.
