You may be able to get money off your Council Tax bill

If you fall behind with your payments, or you are paying late, we will send you a reminder. This gives you seven days to pay.

If you bring your account up to date, but fall behind again, we will send you a second reminder.

If you don't pay or don't keep to an arrangement to pay, you will lose the right to pay in instalments. The full year's council tax becomes due.

The next stage is to issue you with a court summons.
