The Precept is that element of your Council Tax that is paid to Wellingborough Town Council.
Every year, the Town Council draws up budgets and calculates how much money it needs for the next Financial Year. These are usually finalised at a Full Council meeting and then submitted to Borough Council of Wellingborough (BCW). BCW co-ordinates the other demands from Northamptonshire County Council, the Police and themselves and come up with the final rate to be paid from 1st April of that year.
North Northamptonshire Council have launched a 'Restart Grant Scheme' to support local businesses.
The Restart Grant scheme is available from 1st April 2021 to support businesses that are still facing disruption to reopen safely as COVID-19 restrictions are lifted.
Your business must be in the rating list and trading as at 1st April 2021.
An application is required and eligible businesses will be paid:
- a one-off grant of up to £6,000 in the non-essential retail sector
- a one-off grant of up to £18,000 in the hospitality, accommodation, leisure, personal care and gym sectors

Each year the smaller authority's Annual Governance and Accountability Return (AGAR) needs to be reviewed by an external auditor appointed by Smaller Authorities' Audit Appointments Ltd. The unaudited AGAR has been published with this notice. As it has yet to be reviewed by the appointed auditor, it is subject to change as a result of that review.
Any person interested has the right to inspect and make copies of the accounting records for the financial year to which the audit relates and all books, deeds, contracts, bills, vouchers, receipts and other documents relating to those records must be made available for inspection by any person interested.
Attached is the notice explaining these rights and who to apply to for the accounting records.
