We recognise the financial difficulties residents may have in paying their Council Tax in the first months of the next financial year; especially during the current Coronavirus outbreak.
However, Council Tax amounts to around 30% of the Council’s income, income which will be required to fund vital services during the forthcoming months. We expect that taxpayers try to maintain their monthly payments, as set out in their Council Tax bill.
Should taxpayers experience difficulties in meeting their monthly payments due to loss of work and a reduction in income, then help is available through the Council Tax Reduction Scheme which would reduce individual bills or reduce the liability to £0.
Where taxpayers are not eligible for help under the Council Tax Reduction Scheme and are experiencing difficulties to pay their Council Tax, then they are encouraged to contact the Council Tax team as soon as possible on 01248 750057 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss
If you have any questions about your Council Tax or Business Rate bill please read our Frequently Asked Questions.
There are a number of ways in which you can pay your council tax bill.
By Direct debit
Why not make things easier for yourself by paying your council bill by direct debit. It’s the simplest and safest way to pay and here’s why:
- You remain in control
- You have a money back guarantee
- It’s paid monthly but you only sign one form and your Bank or Building Society does the rest
- You can forget queues, cheques, stamps
- It’s a lot safer than paying with cash
- It’s also cheaper and simpler for the council to administer, which benefits everyone in our community.
If you have a query, you have time to check anything you don’t understand or agree with, and under the rules of the Direct Debit guarantee any payment which breaks the terms of your instruction will be refunded immediately to your account.
So how do I change to Direct Debit?
Simply complete the Direct Debit Instruction form. Please see below

You may appeal if you consider that you are not liable to pay council tax, for example, you are not the owner, or the property is exempt or there is a mistake in calculating your bill.
If you wish to appeal you should first notify the council in writing. Further details on the appeal procedures (including the role of Valuation Tribunals) may be obtained from the council.
Making an appeal does not allow you to with-hold payment of tax owing in the meantime. If your appeal is successful you will be entitled to a refund of any overpaid tax.
