Local authority employees
Employee costs account for the largest proportion of the council's net expenditure. This table shows the number of full-time equivalent staff budgeted for and the percentage movement between years.
|Budgeted full-time equivalent 2023/24||4,114.40|
|Change as % of total wage bill||(0.2%)|
# Excludes employees associated with services provided by the Valuation Joint Board. The decrease in full time equivalent employee numbers is due to the savings the Council is budgeting to make through the Finance & Change Plan.
Comparison with government provision for current expenditure
The Scottish Government assesses annually the level of expenditure it considers each council needs to spend to provide the same level of service across every council in Scotland. This table compares the level of expenditure calculated by the Government with Angus Council's proposed expenditure for the forthcoming year.
|Per Band D dwelling|
|Expenditure figure used by the government in Total Revenue Support Grant (government grant support) calculations*||£6,221.47|
|Proposed expenditure by Angus Council on a comparable basis||£6,692.81|
* this support does not apply to all items of expenditure incurred by local authorities
How we work out your Council Tax
Council Tax is a property tax based on the value of your home and the number of adults living there. The Assessor estimates how much your home is worth, based on market values as at 1 April 1991, and puts it into one of eight valuation bands from Band A to Band H. Once we have determined how much money we need to raise from Council Tax, we calculate the sum that would be payable by a Band D property. This amount allows us to calculate the Council Tax level for each of the other valuation bands using proportions set in legislation.
