Council tax, benefits and business rates

Herefordshire Council's budget for 2014/15 is £146.1 million.

Central government gives us some funding, but most comes from council tax. If government funding changes, that affects how much we must raise through council tax.

We are working to save money by changing how our services are delivered. This means making better use of modern technology, while keeping the same quality of service.
