What happens if I don't pay my Council Tax

The Council Tax you pay helps to fund local services including education, social services and the Police.

Council Tax payments should be made on 1st of each month unless you pay your Council Tax by Direct Debit.

We want to help you pay your Council Tax and we may be able to come to a payment arrangement that you can afford. If you don't let us know that you are having difficulty making regular payments, you may incur further costs and charges which will have to be paid.

If you need extra help with your Council Tax bill, please visit our Council Tax Support page or you can go to the money advice service website.
