Where your Council Tax goes
Although the Borough Council collects your council tax, we only keep about 11.1p from every pound.
The rest is divided between other public bodies that deliver services. The table below shows what percentage they each get.
|Percentage||Council or public body|
|75.7%||Hertfordshire County Council|
|10.9%||Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council|
|11.2%||Police and Crime Commissioner for Hertfordshire|
|2.2%||Parish and Town Council|

If you are having financial difficulties and cannot afford to pay your Council Tax, you should ask for a new payment arrangement.
