The 1991–92 figures is net of £140 per adult community charge reduction grant. No information is available on the amount of community charge debit (i.e gross of non-collection) raised in each year.^{3}Calculated as the estimated council tax debit (i.e. gross of non-payment), divided by the number of chargeable dwellings on valuation lists.^{4}Calculated as non-domestic rate yield (i.e. net of non-collection), including crown contributions in lieu, divided by the number of non-domestic hereditatments. The definition of a non-domestic hereditament was changed on 1 April following the introduction of the national non-domestic rate. There were a number of changes to the definition of a non-domestic hereditament at this time, for example lock up garages were taken out of rating. No information is available about the non-domestic rate debit (i.e. gross of non-collection) raised in the year.^{5}Calculated as the rateable value on local rating lists for the year, multiplied by the non-domestic rates multiplier, less estimated rate reliefs, divided by the number of hereditaments on local rating lists. This figure is gross of non-collection, and taken no account of the effect of subsequent appeals on the rates payable for the year.^{6}The average rates payable in 1991–92 increased partly as a result of NHS properties transferring to local rating lists on 1 April 1991.^{7}The average rate payable decreased in 1992–93 because successful appeals resulted in a lower average rateable value for the year.^{8}Calculated as non-domestic rate debit for the local rating list for the year, divided by the number of hereditaments on local rating lists.
