Where your Council Tax goes

Although the Borough Council collects your council tax, we only keep about 10.07 pence from every pound.

The rest is divided between other public bodies that deliver services. The table below shows what percentage they each get.

How your Council Tax is shared
Percentage Council or public body
75.7% Hertfordshire County Council
10.7% Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council
11.3% Police and Crime Commissioner for Hertfordshire
2.3% Parish and Town Council
