Reminder and Final Notice

Reminder

Council tax payments should reach us on the day the instalment is due at the latest. If you are paying by cash/cheque, this will be the 1st or the 15th of the month. If you are paying by Direct Debit this will be the 1st, 10th, 15th or 25th of the month.

If you receive a reminder, you must bring your account up to date within seven days. If you fall behind a second time you will be sent a second reminder.

If you have problems paying your council tax please contact us immediately, we may be able to make a special arrangement with you.

You may be entitled to benefits - why not try our benefit calculator, visit our benefit web pages or contact our benefit section to see if there is anything you can claim.
