Council tax – reminders

If you do not pay your council tax, or if you pay late, we will send you a reminder.

The reminder shows when your instalments were due, how much you have paid and how much you owe.

Please note that we are only legally required to send you one reminder before starting court proceedings.

If you continue to miss payments or pay late, we will send you a final notice or a court summons.

Dispute a missing payment

If we have sent you a letter saying you’ve missed a payment, or you paid late, you can contest it by sending us proof of your payment.
