LOCAL PROPERTY TAX (LPT) 2017

NOTICE OF CONSIDERATION OF SETTING A LOCAL ADJUSTMENT FACTOR

 The Finance (Local Property Tax) Act 2012 (as amended), makes specific provision that elected members of a Local Authority may pass a formal resolution to vary the basic rate of the Local Property Tax for their administrative area by a percentage known as the local adjustment factor.
