Council tax – set up a summons payment arrangement

Set up a payment arrangement to pay your summons.

Who should use this form

You should only use this form if you have been sent a summons.

How to complete the form

  • It should take between five and 10 minutes to complete.

  • You will need to have your council tax account number and payment details ready.

What happens next

By requesting a payment arrangement, you will not stop the action we are taking against you. We will contact you within 10 working days to confirm:

  • if we have agreed to your arrangement

  • details of the amounts you need to pay.

Your liability order hearing will be held on the date shown on the front of your summons letter.

If you arrange a payment plan that finishes after your court hearing date, you will have to pay an extra £50 for the liability order. You can avoid this extra cost if you pay in full now.
