Council tax is a charge made on all domestic properties to help pay for local services.
There is one bill for each home, whether it is a house, flat, bungalow, maisonette, mobile home or houseboat, and whether it is owned or rented. The bill may be reduced by entitlement to discounts or other reductions.

Paying by Instalments
The Government has decided to leave the default at 10 but has decided to grant council taxpayers the legal right to pay by 12 monthly instalments. If you wish to spread your payments over this period please let us know as soon as you receive the new Council Tax bill by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
