Having Difficulty Paying
How to get help
If you are finding it difficult to pay your Council Tax it is important that you let us know as soon as possible. You should contact us as soon as you think you are going to have a problem paying your bill.
We may be able to reduce what you have to pay, for example you may qualify for a discount that you didn't know about or you may qualify for Council Tax Reduction.
We may also be able to help by agreeing a different timetable for your payments.
If you would like advice and assistance in dealing with any debt problems you can find out more on our Dealing with debt page.
What happens if you don't pay?
If you do miss a Council Tax payment there are several steps which the Council will take to remind you that you need to pay.
If we don't know that you are having problems paying, we may take legal action to recover the money which could result in you having to pay a lot more.
Find out more on the What happens if you don't pay - reminders and summons page.
