Council Tax Reminders

If you have received a Council Tax Reminder notice please find some frequently asked questions (FAQ's) below.

If you are finding it difficult to pay your Council Tax it is important that you let us know as soon as possible. The longer you ignore a debt problem, the worse the situation will become.

If you miss a Council Tax instalment payment you will receive a reminder notice. Although the Council Tax Regulations only allow you seven days to bring your instalments up to date, the Council allows you fourteen days. If you don't pay within this time, or if after a second reminder you fall behind with your payments again, you will be asked to pay the full outstanding balance of your Council Tax bill. If you don't pay the full balance, we may start legal action to recover the money.

You can find out more about Council Tax arrears on the GOV.UK website.
