The Welsh government is asking relevant authorities to provide council tax base information for 2022-23. The information requested should be calculated with reference to dwellings shown on the valuation list for each authority as at 31 October 2021.
An estimate of the tax base for each relevant authority is required for purposes of preparing the final local government settlement and authorities must provide a certified copy and spreadsheet by 12 November 2021. The data must be in by the deadline to enable final decisions at a ministerial level to be taken on the local government settlement, which is to be published on 21 December 2021.
Councils have until 31 December 2021 to calculate their tax base for tax setting purposes. A further certified copy of the CT1, showing the final tax base used for tax setting purposes (ratified by full council or by Executive decision), will therefore be required by 4 January 2022.
