If you have received a bill for 2017/2018 which is for a higher amount than you were expecting, this could be due to a transitional adjustment. You can find information and examples of how it is calculated on our transitional adjustment page.

When you do have problems paying the most important thing to do is contact us and let us know about your situation. We will do our best to try and resolve the problem with you.  If you try to ignore the situation it will only get worse.
