Council tax reminders
If you fall behind with council tax payments, we may contact you using a text or voice message or by email, as a reminder before taking further recovery action.
Why we may get in touch
If you are behind with your payments, we may be in touch before a reminder or summons is issued or before we ask our enforcement agents to try and collect the overdue amount on our behalf. This is to help you to take the right action before the formal recovery process continues and avoid additional costs.
Whilst this service is offered to prevent customers from falling further into arrears, it should not be relied upon. It is your responsibility to maintain the instalments due on your account in line with your bill. Failure to do so will result in recovery action being taken.
How will I know if it is genuine or not?
