Council Tax Recovery

Reminder and Final Notices

If you miss a monthly payment, you will be sent a Reminder Notice giving you 7 days to pay.  If you don't pay within 7 days, the full balance for the year will then become due and you will be sent a Final Notice.  

If you do pay in accordance with the first Reminder Notice, you will receive a second Reminder Notice if you fall behind again.  We will only send a maximum of two reminder notices for Council Tax each financial year.

A Reminder Notice will show:

  • The instalment required to be paid
  • The fact that if the amount is not paid within 7 days, the full amount will become due

A Final Notice will show:

  • The full amount to be paid
  • The fact that if the amount is not paid, further recovery action will be taken and a Court Summons issued with additional costs incurred
