Why have I had a reminder?

Your Council Tax payments must be received on or before the dates shown on your bill.

If you have been sent a reminder you can Pay Online. If you need to make an arrangement, call us on 01507 601111, select Council Tax and hold to speak with an advisor.

First Reminder
If you miss your Council Tax instalment, we will send you a reminder giving you seven days to bring your account up to date. If you do this, we will take no further action.

If you do not pay the amount shown on the reminder within seven days, we will ask the Magistrates' Court to issue a summons. Costs will be added to your account.

Second Reminder
If you pay the first reminder within seven days, but you then miss another instalment later in the year, we will send a second reminder. This will be the last reminder we send.

If you do not pay the amount shown on the reminder within seven days of issue, we will ask the Magistrates' Court to issue a summons. Costs will be added to your account.
