Frequently Asked Questions

Q. I am not paying my bill because I am unhappy with the services.
A. You must continue to pay your bill and raise the matter with the authority responsible for the service you are unhappy with. If you stop paying, then we will take enforcement action.

Q. I have a Council Tax appeal outstanding - do I still have to pay? Can I have interest on any overpayment?
A. Yes, you still have to pay. The law states payment is due even if an appeal or claim is outstanding. There is nothing in law requiring interest to be paid for overpaid Council Tax.
