Difficulty paying Council Tax

Overview

If you experience difficulty paying, it is important you let us know as soon possible. We may be able to amend your instalments including spreading them over 12 months including instalments in February and March. 

We would also advise you to pay what you can to reduce the balance due. If you are paying less than the due amount or paying after the due date, then you will receive further notices. If you receive any recovery letters, please contact us to see what we can do to help depending on what stage of recovery the balance is at.

Low income households

If you are on a low income then you may be entitled to Council Tax Reduction. This is a means tested benefit based on your income and capital and can help towards paying your bill.

You may qualify for other discounts or exemptions, based on your circumstances.
