What happens if I don't pay my Council Tax?

Your Council Tax bill

When you receive a demand notice (bill) at the start of the financial year, you will be given 10 or 12 (upon request) monthly instalments. If your bill is issued during the year the number of instalments will be reduced.

If payment is not made within seven days of the instalment date, we can start recovery proceedings.
