In the context of local government finance a "precept" is an "order issued by one local authority to another specifying the rate of tax to be charged on its behalf".

Each year Bakewell Town Council draws up budgets and calculates how much money it requires for the next Financial Year. Once approved by full Council the precept is submitted to Derbyshire Dales District Council. Council Tax demands show the amount of the precept per household.
