Parish Council Precept
Sway Parish Council's Precept (the amount of your Council Tax it collects) for the year April 2023 - March 2024 is £85,665. For every Band D equivalent property in Sway (calculated by NFDC at 1730.8) this equates to £49.49 for the year. View our Budget for 2023-24.
The full Council is responsible for the scrutiny and decision making around finances, and the Responsible Financial Officer (RFO) is responsible for the management of the Council's accounts. The Clerk at Sway is also the RFO and provides monthly payment schedules and bank reconciliations, along with quarterly budget reports and financial reviews. The Council will appoint a working group to prepare a draft budget but only the full Council can set (legally approve) the budget and Precept which forms the tax demand for Sway residents.
