At the Council meeting held on 08 January 2024, Ash Parish Council (APC) agreed to a 1.9% council tax rise for 2024/25. As an example for a band D property, an increase of 1.9% means that the household will now pay £76.68 per year towards the APC precept, which is an additional £1.43 per year. This budget is set as soon as the precept has been calculated and issued to APC.

This is collected via the council tax bill, which includes tax for Surrey County Council (SCC), SCC Adult social care precept, Guildford Borough Council (GBC), Police and Crime Commissioner for Surrey and the APC precept.
