Financial information

Your council tax bill is made up of different charges from Dorset County Council, your district/borough council, the Police Authority, the Fire Authority and in some cases your town or parish council, depending on where you live.

Every year these organisations calculate the total budget they will require to run their services. Each council (except parish councils) is given a sum of money from central government, but they have to fund the difference between this and their budget needs through council tax.
