If you don't pay your council tax or you pay late, you may be subject to recovery proceedings.
Any changes to your council tax account will cause an amended bill to be sent to you.
Below shows what will happen if you don’t pay your council tax on time.
If you don't pay your council tax by the due date we will send you a reminder.
If you pay but are late with another payment we will send a second reminder. No further reminders will be sent.
If you don't pay the amount shown on the reminder within the time stated your instalments are cancelled and a Final Notice will be sent and the full amount is due.
If you don't pay the full amount you will receive a court summons.
If you don’t pay in full by the court date the Magistrate will grant a Liability Order.
The debt may be passed to a Bailiff (enforcement agent) to collect. As well as the court costs you will also have to pay bailiff fees. They may take your goods to sell at auction.
