Behind on your Council Tax payments

If you are behind on your Council Tax payments, it's important that you get in touch with us as soon as possible.

I'd like to offer a payment

If you're behind on your Council Tax payments, it's important to keep paying as much as you can, even if you can't pay enough to bring your account up to date just yet.

If you offer to make a payment that doesn't bring your account up to date, we'll consider the amount you're offering and contact you as soon as possible, letting you know if we will accept your offer. You can make an offer to pay in one of two ways:

  • Make an offer to pay - by Direct Debit
  • Make an offer to pay - not by Direct Debit (see our payments page for other methods of payment)

Can I view my Council Tax account to see how much I owe?

To check your Council Tax balance and account online, you can sign up to our MyInfo service.

What can happen if I don't pay my Council Tax?

The Council has a duty to collect Council Tax and will take action to ensure payment is made on time. This is why it's so important to contact us if you're having difficulty in paying your bill.

More information is available on out "non payment" page. 

Can I talk to someone in the Council Tax team about my bill?

To talk to someone in the Council Tax team for help and advice on getting your Council Tax account up to date, just fill in our general enquiry form. A member of the team will then call you back within 5 working days.
